June is for chillin’ and grillin’

“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” – Billy Graham

They are a daughter’s first love and a son’s first hero, they are the greatest storytellers and the biggest jokesters, they are our dads! Dads are often the closest thing we have to real-life superheroes. They are strong and brave – total legends. They’re also some of the best teachers, coaches, and mentors we’ll ever have, full of wisdom and always there to cheer us on.

As June rolls around, keep in mind what important date it brings: Father’s Day on the 19th! It’s never too early to start planning how to celebrate your dad. You can make him a special Father’s Day brunch or breakfast with his favourite dishes, or even surprise him with a meat delivery so he can fire up the grill for his favourite braaivleis.

Use this month to honour the fathers in your lives, whether that be your dad, stepdad, granddad, uncle, neighbour, or any male figure that takes on a fatherly role for you. There’s nothing like the advice, love, and support from them. They’re always willing to lend a helping hand or offer an ill-timed dad joke that we can’t help but laugh at!

It’s important to treasure quality time with dad and celebrate the many roles he plays in your life. From braai master and designated driver to self-qualified mechanic and king of falling asleep on the couch – you got to love your ol’ man!

Make awesome memories with your dad this month. Enjoy fun-filled winter activities at our resorts. Go golfing on the greens, head to the dam for some fishing or cycle the road less travelled. Plus, enjoy some bonding time over the braai and remember to laugh extra loudly at his special dad jokes! Check out the resorts that will be hosting terrific Father’s Day events with dad’s favourite meals.

Make this month one he’ll always remember!

Tee-rific Golf

Bond with dad over a fun game of golf out on the Magalies Park golf course. Admire the stunning backdrop of the Magaliesberg while you and the old man enjoy the 18-hole course. Or visit one of our many resorts to challenge dad to a game of adventure golf. There are awesome mini golf courses at the below resorts:

Reel ‘em in

Is there a more “dad activity” than fishing? Having dad teach us about fishing was awesome. He baited our first hook, tied an encyclopaedia’s worth of knots and taught us that fishing often transcends catching fish. Head to the dams at the below resorts for the ultimate fishing excursion with your pops!

•    Qwantani Berg and Bush Resort
•    Midlands Saddle & Trout
•    Whispering Waters
•    Hole in the Wall
•    Magalies Park
•    Bushman’s Nek Berg & Trout
 
Fire up the grill

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so why not celebrate Father’s Day with a feast fit for a king? Dads love their dop and chop, so treat the man to braaivleis and beers on his special day.

Don’t let the cold weather stop you from spending some quality time with dad. Or if you prefer to skip the cooking, the below resorts are hosting spectacular Father’s Day events.

Book early to secure your spot!

Pedal it out

Your dad was most likely the one to teach you to ride your first bike. Recapture some of those precious moments with a bike ride down North Beach promenade or, if you’re feeling adventurous, head to Magalies Park to face the mountain bike trails. Many of our resorts offer bike hire or cycling trails that provide for the perfect Father’s Day activity.

Dads are the greatest gifts who give the best hugs and can fix just about anything. Spoil the father figures in your life with a memorable holiday and activities he’ll love! Whether you choose a golf getaway or a fishing trip, whether your dad is an adventurous risk-taker or a laid-back griller, we’re sure that his Father’s Day will be filled with love and superb experiences!
