Sweet spots for an epic Easter-egg hunt

Take rescue dogs for a treat, let the kids find chocolate treasures

Last update: 25 March 2021

For the kids, Easter is all about hunting down the eggs the bunny brought. Host your own exciting hunt in the comfort of your home (we've got some tips and tricks to help you out), or take the kids out for a pre-organised egg hunt in and around Cape Town. 

Further afield, Char'd Grill has let their Easter mascot loose in the streets of Hermanus (find out what you get if you find him). Or stay closer to home and whisk the family away for an Easter stay-cation.


At the One&Only in the V&A Waterfront, parents can let the little ones join in on an Easter-filled wonderland. Think, an Easter egg hunt with none other than the Easter bunny itself, the annual smashing of an Easter-egg piñata and more Easter-inspired activities. Plus, the One&Only’s signature restaurant, Ochre, will be serving an elaborate three-course Sunday lunch where children under 12 cost half price and kids under six eat for free. 

Price: R650 per person for Ochre’s family-style menu.
Date: 4 April

This year the V&A Waterfront's has two Easter egg hunts planned for the kids: the Great Eggscape virtual egg hunt and the Easter egg hunt at Maker's Landing. You can hop online and search for the 10 hidden easter eggs in and around the V&A Waterfront, or you can let the kids run around Maker's Landing and collect an Easter egg at each foodie station. 

Price: The Great Eggscape virtual Easter egg hunt is free and kids can play online via You can book your ticket (R100 per person) for the Easter egg hunt at Maker’s Landing online via Quicket.
Date: 22 March - 9 April

Take advantage of the unconventional Easter special at this trendy Hermanus steakhouse that caters to meat-eaters and vegetarians. The Char’d Grill’s mascot, dressed in steampunk-styled duds, will be roaming the streets of the coastal town. The first 50 lucky people who hunt him down, take a snapshot, and post it to social media will receive one of Char’d Grill’s famous burgers for free. If you miss out on this score, there’s a burger special from Monday to Thursday at Chard Gill and Wine Bar.

Price: Free
Date: Saturday, 3 April, 10:30 am - 8 pm (hours are subject to change, depending on the lockdown level)

Steenberg Wine Farm has an entire Easter weekend special planned for the whole family. You can enjoy an Easter stay-cation and book for 3 nights but pay for two, over the Easter weekend. Plus, children under 12 can stay for free (maximum of two children per booking). Think, an interactive treasure hunt for the kids and the parents, Easter crafts and lawn games, an afternoon at the spa and relaxing cycles, and walks around the estate for an Easter family stay-cation at Steenberg Estate. 

Date: Friday, 2 April - Monday, 5 April 
Price: Prices will vary according to family size. You can book your stay online via

This isn't your average Easter egg hunt. Grace Animal Sanctuary at Le Bonheur Farm is letting the dogs out for a 4km Easter stroll. To get every dog out of the sanctuary for the afternoon, you and the kids can pick your favourite dog for the day and take it for an adventure. If you don't want to leave your own pooch behind, bring them along (no females in heat are allowed to join). All dogs must be on leads for their Easter Egg Hunt for the Hounds at Grace Animal Sanctuary.

Price: R50 per dog and R20 per handler
Date: 10 April

There is a lot going on around Easter time and for some, running around Cape Town with the kids may be a difficult feat to achieve. Staying at home or finding the nearest park to hide your Easter eggs (and having an Easter picnic while the kids play) is the perfect substitute. There are plenty of parks in and around Cape Town to choose from, plus, we’ve got an easy pickled fish dish that's perfect for an Easter picnic lunch

Date: Friday, 2 April - Sunday, 4 April
Price: it’s up to you



Do you use kabeljou, snoek, or hake in your pickled fish recipe?
