Forget the socks, forget the mugs and definitely forget the biltong! We recommend getting dad outdoors and immersed in adventure. There are so many activities around the Kruger Lowveld that any dad would enjoy such as the adrenaline pumping Big Swing. Located at the Graskop Gorge Lift Company, this cable swing launches at the top of the gorge and lets you freefall 70 metres before swinging from side to side. If dad prefers both feet firmly on the ground, he can take the viewing lift down to the bottom of the gorge and enjoy the Afromontane Forest below.
We know dads are tough, but perhaps it’s time to nurture his more ‘softer’ side? Treat dad to a massage at one of many spa retreats across the Kruger Lowveld and we guarantee that he’ll enjoy it more than he’ll admit. If dad loves the bush and seldom gets time to enjoy viewing wildlife, send dad off on a full day game drive where he’ll be able to sit back and relax while spotting the Big 5. If you want to make the day even more special, why not book dad in for a night at the Kruger National Park? He could also do the exhilarating morning walk where he an get up close to the Big 5.
For a peaceful time where dad can be in nature, pack a picnic basket and head on over to the Lowveld National Botanical Garden. Dad is guaranteed to enjoy timeout with loved ones in this idyllic setting. Don’t forget to also visit the Cascades Viewpoint for the best picture moments! Whatever you decide to surprise dad with this Father’s Day, make it special by visiting the Kruger Lowveld, South Africa’s premier Father’s Day destination!
