SEND OFF THE BACHELORS + BACHELORETTES

Make your pal walk the metaphorical gangplank into her or his marriage with a party on the Jolly Roger Pirate Boat. It’s South Africa’s only pirate ship and you can board it and party all night – even better, book it exclusively and you get to choose the music for the night. Plus a themed party can be arranged.

Open: Summer, 9am-7pm; winter, 9am - 5pm
Book: Call 021 421 0909 or book on webtickets

GO PARTY AT A CLASSY STRIP CLUB

Mavericks is Cape Town’s premium strip club on three floors. The Empire Lounge, on the ground floor, is quieter and perfectly set up for bachelor or bachelorette parties. It features its own bar and areas which can be curtained off that feature a private dance pole. This is what a night out at Mavericks looks like.

Open: from 3pm on Fridays
Book: on Dineplan or whatsapp 063 261 2312.

PLAY AN EPIC ESCAPE ROOM

Kick off the bachelor’s with an original cocktail of “think Mission Impossible meets 30 Seconds”. You will talk about it for the rest of the day. Guaranteed. Take your group of friends into a shipwreck riddled with clues, a decrepit hotel room that will soon crumble to the ground or a sunken ship flooded with diamonds and pearls. These thrilling group adventures take place in Cape Town’s original escape rooms at HintHunt in the V&A Waterfront. (Read our full feature).

CRAFT BEER, BRAAI OR WINE TASTING

An epic road trip through Cape Town, going from one hot spot to the next, in a colourful, painted minibus with your best friends and the coolest tunes blaring from the speakers – Kiff Kombi Tours is perhaps the city’s ultimate bachelor party experience. Kiff Kombi Tours offers loads of tour options, but the Craft Beer Safari and Wine, Beer & Biltong Safari that takes you from Cape Town to picturesque Stellenbosch are recommended. They offer perfect bachelor-party activities such as clayshooting, paintball and bubble soccer. Their website offers a section for Bachelor/ette-Events specifically. Or, custom-make your tour by choosing your own route, sites and pick-up and drop-off spots – perfect for creating that bachelor party that everyone will be talking about for years to come.


Cost:
Kiff Kombi Tours' Craft Beer Safari, as well as the Wine, Beer & Biltong Safari, is from R1100pp - R2100, depending on the size of the group.

BATTLEFIELD LIVE SA LASER TAG 

Crank up the testosterone levels to 11 prior to a sentimental wedding ceremony with an action-packed, adrenaline-fuelled laser tag game. Battlefield Live SA is a military simulation skirmish that gives you and the boys a chance to enact all your Call of Duty fantasies thanks to state-of-the-art infrared weaponry, war paint for camouflage and daring martial missions. Though strikingly similar to real military exercises, the games are a less painful alternative to paintballing (so no unsightly welts for the groom before the big day) and they offer the same blood-pumping good time; so, everyone from the tough guy to the nerdiest member of the group is bound to have an absolute jol. Typical missions include ‘capture the flag’, ‘VIP escort’ and ‘sniper’, and the bachelor parties can be hosted at Wynberg Park in the Southern Suburbs or at outdoor sites in Paarl or Stellenbosch. Alternatively, if you have a venue that’s just right for a bit of battling, Battlefield Live will bring the fun to you. No matter where the gaming takes place, the guys will dig it because, honestly, how many men haven’t dreamt of being Rambo?

GETAWAY ON A HOUSEBOAT
Hint hint: we think this stag party idea may become one of the most exciting options out there! If you’ve got a little extra money and a weekend to spend, consider renting a houseboat atop the azure waters in the SANParks West Coast National Park. While there are cheaper chalet rentals on offer in the reserve, a bachelor weekend mandates a bit of a splurge. Accordingly, take your pick of the Larus houseboat (accommodates up to six people) or the Nirvana houseboat (up to 24 people) for a truly wow-weekend. With on-board braai facilities, an open dining area and stunning views aplenty, the stage is set for the ultimate getaway vacation right in the Mother City’s own backyard. There is also plenty of water activities available in the area like kayaking, swimming and kitesurfing. For more information on rates, call the West Coast National Park.

INDOOR ROCK CLIMBING
Nothing gets a bachelor party going like a healthy dose of adrenaline. Round up the boys and head straight to HangTime Gym, Cape Town’s latest addition to the indoor rock climbing scene. Challenge each other to climbing routes of varying difficulty and see who comes out on top. Then, if you’re feeling a bit brave you can try the 13m monster wall, the highest of its kind in Cape Town. This epic climbing experience will only set you back R175pp for parties and this includes entry, all the gear and dedicated instructors. Or, you can go on a Tuesday (Two’s Day special) and every second person pays half price. Every 21st of the month you can also capitalise on the 2 for 1 special. So get to HangTime Gym and start separating the men from the mice.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY BRAAI
Last but not least (although, this option is obviously weather permitting), a budget-friendly braai may be the perfect outing for the no-frills-attached almost-married man. Invite a few friends, buy a few kilograms of meat and simply choose the braai spot of your dreams; even if neither you nor your mates have a sizeable outdoor area, the Mother City can step in and provide countless options with unbeatable views. As you reminisce about the single life, flip steaks over the open fire, slurp down ice-cold beers and watch the sun set over the ocean, you’ll think those other bachelors partying at strip clubs and pounding down shots at pub golf seem crazy. With all the beautiful views of Cape Town, who needs wild nights or any additional eye candy? And if you’re not the most seasoned braai master in town, check out some tips from Jan Braai.
