Father’s Day is celebrated in South Africa on the 19 June 2011. If you’ve done the t-shirt, bought the socks and the aftershave, then think out the box and do something fun with your dad and seal the bond this Father’s Day with time together. Share an experience for an extra special Father’s Day and show him you care!

Here’s our Cape Point Route Top 10 Tops for Father’s Day 2011:

1. FATHER’S DAY PUFFER – TAKE THE STEAM TRAIN

Hop on board a wooden vintage train carriage (1922 – 1938) and give your dad a Father’s Day experience – with the toot tooting of the train, puffs of steam. A day trip along the rugged coastline of False Bay to the rhythmic clacking of a Vintage steam train. More…

2. FATHER’S DAY DOWN UNDER – SUBMERGE YOUR DAD IN A SUBMARINE

Take your Father down under with a harbour cruise and submarine visit in Simon’s Town. Retired naval officers will take you into the SAS Assegaai – converted into a floating museum. This 1972 French-built submarine was decommissioned in November 2003. 90 min tour with harbour cruise but we recommend the Simon’s Town getaway for a real bargain. More…
