Father’s Day is just around the corner. Have you made plans yet on how to treat your dad this year?
Father’s Day is not just about serving Dad breakfast in bed. It’s an opportunity to show your father how much you appreciate him and at the same time spend quality time together. What better way to do this than to go on an adventure together!
Have a look below at some great ideas for adventures you can do together if you live in, or are visiting the Garden Route.
Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours
Ziplines are a fun activity the whole family can partake in. Tsitsikamma Canopy Tours are situated in the Knysna forest. Glide through the forest, thirty meters above the ground, and savor the magnificent bird and plant life. Professional guides ensure your safety and keep you informed about interesting facts and tidbits about the forest.
Beer or Gin Tasting
If your dad has fallen into the craft beer or gin bandwagon, Robertson Brewery Co in Wilderness is the ideal treat! They offer both beer and gin tastings and will have a wide selection of delectable tapas, platters and burgers on offer on Fathers Day.
Treat Dad by spending a carefree afternoon with him on the golf course.The Garden Route is a golfer’s paradise with 4 renowned golf courses. Pezula & Simola are situated in Knysna, surrounded by natural beauty. Fancourt,with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as its backdrop, is situated in George and considered to be one of SA’s best. There is also the world renowned Goose Valley in Plett
Bungy Jump at Bloukrans
Is your dad an adrenaline junkie? Then he will LOVE doing the bungy jump at Bloukrans. It is recognised as the ‘highest bungee from a bridge’ in the world, with a drop of more than 200 meters.
Tsitsikamma Segway Tours
If jumping off a bridge proves to be too much, why not try an equally fun adventure, by having a guided tour through the Knysna forest on a 2-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered Segway. The tour starts off with a quick training session after which you glide off deep into the Tsitsikamma forest.
