Father’s Day 4×4

Buying Dad a gift for Father’s Day isn’t always easy. He doesn’t need another pair of socks or heaven forbid, a soap-on-a-rope. Why not take him on an outing he would love instead? The De Wildt 4×4 Game Park in the Magaliesberg is the prefect place to go. We went a few weeks ago and we loved it. It is truly the best gift we could give the men in our lives.

The 4×4 nature drive is 14kms through beautiful South African bush and Dad will be able to put his 4×4 through its paces. The obstacles are fun and challenging (read: a little scary sometimes), but it is fun for the whole family. The kids cheer and mom clings to the dash. You can go up and down steep hills and drive through water with big, muddy splashes. More cheering from the kids.

The drive takes you past giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelope. It’s a game drive with an adventurous edge. Stop and check out the view. Our country is beautiful. Get out there and enjoy it.

You do have to book in advanced, which is awesome because the trail and braai areas aren’t overcrowded. It’s roughly 40 minutes out of Pretoria and only 4×4 vehicles are allowed on the trail.

This is truly the perfect way to spend Father’s day with a dad who doesn’t like restaurants or soap-on-a-rope.

Father’s day, the way Dad likes it. Book today at Dewildt 4×4. They also have accommodation if you are looking to get away for the weekend.

Lucky Rodrigo

We love burgers and we love milkshakes, so it makes sense that we love Lucky Rodrigo in Menlo Park.

Lucky Rodrigo The interior can be described as Grandma’s house went grunge with a good dash of Spur. Relax, there is no jungle gym. The food is served in pans, we assume were salvaged from a once a upon a time Ocean Basket and they serve box wine. It’s classy box wine because it is served in individual portions. Like juice boxes for adults. Happiness is…

The burgers are big and beefy with proper sesame buns and good old fashioned steakhouse chips. Oh, and there is a bar.

You can find them on Facebook here and on the web here.

Get there. Try everything.

Lil’ Miz Day Spa

We found a place that makes little girls’ dreams come true. The Lil’ Miz Day Spa is in Equestria and it’s prefect. The only thing missing is a unicorn.

Lil' Miz Day Spa

It caters to little girls (and their mommies if need be), it offers a kiddie hair salon, manicure station, pedi lounge, jacuzzi and even real treatment beds all is shades of pink.

The therapists are amazing as they patiently sit and paint the girls’ tiny nails ten different colours (true story). All treatments include a cupcake and whole lot of glitter. It’s an awesome idea for a girly birthday party.
