Top Things to Do For Mother’s Day

This coming Sunday is Mothers Day. If you are anything like us, and have left it till the last minute to honour the woman you brought you into this world, we have a handy list of what you can treat her to on Sunday.

Lucky for you, there is still time to book her a lunch, experience, or just some time out and get away without seeming like you totally forgot! What is better than to treat mom to some good old down time and spoils than buying something that is eventually just going to be thrown away, eaten or forgotten about. Or that is just downright insensitive, like a certain retailer that we won’t mention. Without further ado, here is what is happening in Cape Town on Mommy Day!

Bubbles and Salsa at Nomad

Who can’t say no to bubbles? Certainly not us! But why not add in a dash of salsa dancing and bottomless ribs, and this is a must-do for Sunday! Treat mom to some delicious food, 3 glasses of bubbles and soul shifting dance moves at the bistro in town!

Nomad is planted squarely in Cape Town and offers patrons a warm environment to mingle, socialize and dance the sunday away in the streets of the City. Bottomless Ribs are R99, the three glasses of bubbles will also set you back R99 and the salsa is thrown in as the cherry on top! This budget buster is a must!

Where: Nomad Bistro

Time: 12pm

Cost: R99 for bubbles, R99 for bottomless Ribs

Mothers Day at the Rockwell

A truly exceptional South African experience, rich in heritage, coupled with an array of favourite South African dishes, laughter and entertainment… “Kaapse Stories” at The Rockwell Dinner Theatre is a vibrant story shared by a family that lived in District Six. They share their experiences and a touch of Cape Town’s history through song and dance, all perfectly incorporated into the Dinner!

Mother’s Day offers a four course lunch, a free glass of sparkling wine OR freshly squeezed orange juice on arrival and a special guest appearance by , all of this is a treat for all moms. The rest of the family will have to pay their way though, but why not treat that special woman in your life!

Where: Rockwell Dinner Theatre

Time: 12pm

Cost: Mom- Free, Adults- R450 Children (5-12)- R225

Mothers Day at Fairview

If a drive out to the winelands, some wine tasting and fresh air is more down mom’s alley, then why not stop off at Fairview Wine Estate. Not only will mom get treated to spending time with some of the cutest goats in the Western Cape, but she will get a complimentary cheese and wine tasting.

Fairview is renowned for its sprawling lawns, gorgeous views, decadent wines and naturally, for the delicious goats cheese. The Goatshed restaurant is fully booked for the day, but we think its a perfect place to stop while doing a wineland tour with mom.

Where: Fairview Wine Estate

Time: 9am-4pm

Cost: Mom- Free
