Let’s face it, we all work hard and need the opportunity to blow off some steam, but how many of us draw a blank when trying to think of something different to do? Father’s Day is the ideal opportunity to get Dad to try something new – here are a few ideas:
How about getting Dad to jump off a bridge in Krugersdorp? This one is definitely not for the faint-hearted, as it involves leaping off a 45m platform before swinging like a pendulum. If that’s a little too extreme, abseiling and paintball are also on offer.
Just 30 minutes outside of Joburg lies a fantastic zipline adventure that crisscrosses the Muningi Gorge. There are a number of different options, depending on how brave Dad is, but no matter the choice you’ll be stunned by the views, which are nothing short of spectacular!
Kloofing basically involves moving down a kloof by hiking, climbing, jumping, bouldering, abseiling and swimming. It’s a fantastic outdoor adventure for fit dads!
If it’s ziplining you’re after, then Ama Zwing Zwing Zip Lines is the place to go. Simply put, you get to zipline over beautiful scenery and do a spot of game viewing while “floating” up high. The venue is just 40 minutes from Joburg and really worth the drive.
This is always a win and never gets old. This particular company offers quads for kids, teens and adults, as well as the option to book a private champagne picnic in the bushveld (rose petals and heart cushions are optional if you feel like being romantic)!
Who knew that Joburg had its own private beach? This innovative venue is the perfect spot for the family to play – and Dad might even want to join the four-a-side or six-a-side Leagues!
The Archers of Zoo Lake offer training, coaching and an outdoor range that caters for distances of up to 90m. Your equipment can be rented on site, plus there’s the option of taking part in club tournaments if Dad decides that he’d like to take it up as a sport!
