Things to do this Father’s Day

Escape room, clay pigeon shooting, free beer, comedy show

Last updated: Tuesday, 04 June 2024

We’ve rounded up amazing ways to make Father’s Day extra special this year. There’s a comedy festival, spa & stay special in a 1920s manor, superhero escape room, museum with over 200 classic motorbikes, and you can even paint your own beer mug. Plus, try clay pigeon shooting. Here are ten things to do with the dad(s) in your life.

TRY ONE OF THE BEST COFFEE’S IN CAPE TOWN?

This coffee shop has won five “Best Coffee in Cape Town” awards, partly thanks to its special Isabella blend. Isabella is named after the founder’s daughter, who was born the week her dad released his coffee blend to the South African market. It’s 100% Arabica coffee with a dark chocolate and roasted hazelnut aftertaste. You can taste it at mischu in Sea Point

Date: Monday to Saturday, 6:45am to 5:30pm; Sunday & public holidays, 7:30am to 5:00pm
Cost: From R119 for a smoked beef burger
