Spending the day in Cape Town with your mother

 In Things to do

Cape Town is a spectacular destination, yes, but where can you go if you’re looking to spend some quality time with your mother? Don’t worry; let us do the hard work for you. We’re going to share activities in Cape Town that’ll suit every kind of mother.


Go Ziplining in Constantia

For a Mother’s Day with an exhilarating twist, take your mum to go Ziplining in Constantia. The view is simply unbelievable. Cap the day with a gourmet pizza at one of Cape Town’s fabulous restaurants.

Full Moon hike up Lion’s Head

Whether you go on the hike on Saturday and wish your mother a happy Mother’s Day at 12am or spend the Sunday evening on Lion’s Head, the experience will be equally enchanting.

Take the Table Mountain Cable Car

Nothing, absolutely nothing, beats an early morning view from Table Mountain’s height in a cable car. Your mother will love it. Go wine tasting or enjoy a piece of cake afterward.



Royale Eatery

With over 50 gourmet burgers to choose from, the Royale Eatery will delight everyone who appreciates a proper burger. Treat your mother to a low-key, high-class meal for a change.

The Foodbarn

Go for lunch at the Foodbarn and indulge in their A la carte menu. From delicate prawn fritters, creamy risotto and a chocolate truffle tartl to crown the afternoon. What more do you need from a restaurant?



Mangwanani Boutique Spa

Indulge in massage treatments that are infused with traditional African healing rituals. This spa also offers treatments for kids and teens so mum can relax without worry.

Spa at Cape Grace

If you’re a son looking to make his mother feel fabulous, you needn’t worry. Get her a Cape Grace Spa voucher. If you’d like to tag along, you can spend some time in the fully-equipped gym.

Wine tasting at Steenberg

If you’re in Cape Town, wine tasting is the natural thing to do. Perfect for older children and parents, Steenberg offers classic wine tours that’ll give you a taste of every wine on the spectrum.



Grab a cup of hot stuff at Truth Coffee

Truth Coffee is the premier coffee house in South Africa set in an almost Alice in Wonderland setting housed in a three story Victorian warehouse. Enjoy some breakfast or lunch and a cappuccino, of course and buy her a packet of exquisite coffee.

Pick roses at Chart Farm

Take Mother’s Day flowers to the next level and join your mother at the Chart Farm to pick roses. Don’t be shy, allow her to pick a nice bunch and then make your way to a café for a milkshake.

High Tea at the Mount Nelson

Call it cliché or classic, you can never go wrong with a high tea on Mother’s Day. Mount Nelson offers the perfect setting in which to enjoy delicate pastries and tea. Just don’t forget the crumpets, darling.
