Whisky tasting at the Cape Grace Hotel

V&A Waterfront

Whisky should be savoured in a sophisticated setting, so don your smoking jackets and head to Bascule Bar at the Cape Grace Hotel for their Saturday night tasting. From 6pm, the luxurious lounge of wood and face brick makes for the perfect atmosphere to indulge in your favourite tipple. Whether you prefer a smoky single malt, a sweet and spicy blend or a light floral character, their more than 500 whiskies on offer mean you’re bound to find your perfect match.

Tandem paragliding with Birdmen

Lion's Head

Get strapped in and take flight with tandem paragliding off Lion’s Head. It takes just a few quick steps before you’ve left terra firma behind to enjoy a bird’s eye-view of the Mother City and Atlantic Seaboard. Silently surf the airstreams for as long as 30 minutes as your experienced instructor manoeuvres you over the landscape to a soft landing in Camps Bay.

Beer tasting tour at Newlands Brewery


Newlands Brewery makes eight of Cape Town’s most well-known beers. This two-hour tour takes you through the brewing journey from water and hops to the finished product. Behind the scenes access is one of the highlights, where you witness the secrets of the brew cycle, before sitting down to sample five different varieties. Afterwards, you can continue the tasting with two free pints at the brewery’s historic pub.

Shark cage diving with Shark Explorers

Simon's Town

Can your crew handle a great white sighting? Get up close and personal with these sea giants on a half-day tour with Shark Explorers. They pick you up before dawn and take you to False Bay, where you catch great whites in action. Keep your eyes peeled for sharks that approach the boat, with their tell-tale fins breaking the surface. The real highlight is getting in the cage, where you're lowered into the sea for a breath-taking view of the animals in their own environment.

Inside Sports Lounge


Pizza, curry, craft beers and sports - what more could the boys ask for? Inside Sports Lounge in Bloubergstrand serves up some of the most authentic Indian food in Cape Town, alongside beachfront views and five big-screen TVs. Opt for their famous bunny chow, a gourmet pizza or the decked-out burger. Arrive when your favourite team is playing, and expect a lively, welcoming crowd.

Mavericks Gentlemen’s Club


If your boys' weekend is not complete without some adult entertainment of the female persuasion, then Mavericks Gentlemen's Club is the spot for you. This upmarket revue bar, situated in the CBD offers up to 80 exotic dancers and lap dances for your paid pleasure. Relax in stylish bars and VIP lounges, or feast at the restaurant, while performers tantalise with burlesque and erotic strip teases.
