She Gave You Life. Gift Her Something Equally Extraordinary for Mother’s Day

Whether she likes macaroons or massages, these are impressive options of unique things to do with or for your mom

 

We’ve cherry-picked some interesting alternatives for the mom who prefers experiences over things. She can walk with some wild cats at Vredenheim Animal Farm, master a mystery game at HintHunt, go shopping or take to the skies.

24% OFF THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME
Spoil her with TripAdvisor’s three top must do experiences in Cape Town: a flight with Cape Town Helicopters. The state-of-the-art, quieter, air-conditioned and more stable Airbus craft mean the flight with their pilots (who are all also qualified tour guides) is a comfortable and scenic ride. A favourite option is the Full Peninsula tour, which takes in the city and its beaches, all the way down past Hout Bay before cutting through Noordhoek to take her over the Cape of Good Hope for the ultimate aerial view of Cape Point.
Price: CapeTownMagazine.com readers get the Hopper flight for only R988/p when using the booking code “CapeTownMagazineHopper”. Or get a 10% discount on ALL other flights with Cape Town Helicopters. Claim yours by using our unique booking code: FlyAirbus.
