Table Mountain Cableway

Is your dad the type who loves the outdoors? Take him on a scenic cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain, where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic Cape Town views. If you’re both feeling particularly adventurous, and the weather’s working in your favour, you could even hike up the mountain together and take the cable car down.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

Next, head over to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, where you can stroll through the lush gardens or enjoy a meal at one of their restaurants. The Garden is the perfect place to relax after a long day and spend quality time with your dad.

Cape Point

If you and your dad enjoy taking the long road, a trip to Cape Point should certainly be on the cards for a Father’s Day Sunday Funday! Visiting the nature reserve in winter is a unique and unforgettable experience, despite the current chilly weather. Not to mention, the Two Ocean’s Restaurant is open from 09h00 – 16h30, giving you ample time to fuel up before you hit the road again.

V&A Waterfront


Fancy a shopping spree for Father’s Day, anyone? Head down to the V&A Waterfront, where you can treat your dad to a wide variety of shopping, dining and tourist experiences. End the day on a high note by taking a leisurely ride on the Cape Wheel and enjoying a bird’s eye view of the city. You can also visit the Two Oceans Aquarium, where you can see various marine life, including sharks, penguins, and turtles.

Groot Constantia

Cape Town Big 6 Groot Constantia

If your dad loves wine, the historic Groot Constantia Wine Estate will impress him. The estate offers many ways to show him how much you appreciate him this year. With award-winning wine, top-rated restaurants like Simon’s and Jonkershuis and many other options to enhance your visiting experience, you’d want this visit to last forever.

Robben Island Museum

Taking a ferry trip to Robben Island Museum could be a meaningful way to spend time with your dad. This historic site offers a powerful and educational experience that will transport you back in time as you explore the museum. You’ll gain a greater appreciation for South Africa’s complex past and create lasting memories with your dad to cherish for years to come.

Even though Cape Town’s winter is upon us, your dad still deserves the best outdoor spoils this Sunday! With so many unique attractions to choose from, celebrating Father’s Day at the Cape Town Big 6 attractions will undoubtedly make your dad feel extra loved on this special day.
