Father’s Day is just around the corner, and although our options are limited, there’s no reason not to spoil Dad. Whether it’s hiking, family time, or slow-roasted beef, Lockdown or not, you should still make an effort to celebrate Father’s Day with your loved ones.
Stuck on what to do? We’ve created our list of favourite things to do in Stellenbosch this Father’s Day:
Breakfast in bed
Nothing beats the classic ‘breakfast in bed’. Pamper Dad on 21 June with a delightful set of goodies, ready to go before he opens his eyes. Prepare a good old-fashioned egg and bacon combo, or order in from any of Stellenbosch’s superb restaurants. Either way, Dad’s sure to appreciate it as he fuels up for the day ahead.
After kicking off Father’s Day in Stellenbosch with a savoury start, switch on Dads’ favourite channel and grab a takeaway coffee from De Warenmarkt, the perfect warming start to a winter’s day. After a welcoming wake-up call, it’s time to set out and begin the day.
Hike along the Eerste River Trail
There’s plenty of opportunities to catch the winter sun. Take Dad along for a ride and tackle the Eerste river hiking trail this Father’s Day. A local favourite, this beautiful 3km trail is an epic Father’s Day idea in Stellenbosch which isn’t too taxing. You’ll get to spend some quality time together out in the fresh air and work off that big Stellenbosch breakfast.
Still looking for ideas for Father’s Day? Why not take a walk underneath the oaks and admire some of the outdoor sculptures scattered around Stellenbosch. Even if Dad’s not the artsy type, it’s always good to stretch your legs, not to mention an opportunity to take some snaps for Instagram.
You’re in luck this Father’s Day, Spier is offering a soul-warming Father’s Day box crammed with delicious treats, delivered straight to your door. There’s no better way to end the day than diving into a bottle of Seaward Shiraz, paired with pasture-reared beef biltong, pork salami sticks, beef snapsticks, and flaky croissants and strawberry jam from the Spier Farm Café.
Braai and Merlot
Top off this Lockdown Father’s Day experience with a classic braai complemented with some of the best wines Stellenbosch has to offer. Order your wines online from Delheim or indulge in a savoury mix from Jordan wine estate. Just be sure to order in advance for Father’s Day.
