Whether you decide to take your dad out for a meal or try something different, it can be hard to know exactly where to go to give him the very best possible experience. To help you plan your day, we’ve rounded up a few of the events that are taking place on Father’s Day.

What to Do This Father's Day in Cape Town

While fathers should be celebrated every day (and mothers too, we might add!), once a year we honour the role that biological and adoptive dads play, along with father figures who take on the role of dad. This day is all about family, but it’s also about strong male figures who are there for us through thick and thin.
