Tired of giving your Dad the same old socks and undies combo? Here’s a few travellers gems that’ll keep you in the good books for years to come.
If last year’s Father’s day gift is still collecting dust, it’s time to break the pattern of boring presents and surprise your Dad, Grandpa or Father-in-law with something that he’ll be talking about for years to come. Whether your Dad’s a history and arts buff, loves the great outdoors or is simply in need of some ‘boys’ time, make this Father’s Day even more memorable by giving the special men in your life the gift of travel.
For the rock star Dads
The 10-day Tastes and Sounds of the South through USA and Canada allows your aspiring rock star Dad to walk in the shoes of music legend, Johnny Cash. They’ll be treated to an exclusive private performance of his son, John Carter Cash. Later, they’ll immerse themselves in southern hospitality by attending Joe Stone’s private residence to listen to the music mogul strike up a storm on his 1903 Steinway grand piano.
To the beat of the drum
Experience Southern African culture at its most vibrant on the 10-day An African Adventure. Dads will be treated to an interactive drumming, or Djembe, session. They’ll also visit the gates where Nelson Mandela walked to freedom and the ‘Big 5’ at Kruger National Park. Along the journey, Dads will get the chance to meet local families in a township on the outskirts of Cape Town and take in the stunning coastal landscapes that South Africa has to offer.
A brew, or two!
Discover age-old techniques of making the finest local beer and watch Argentinian master brewers’ hone their craft over a lunch filled with authentic Argentinian flavours. The 10-day Spirit of Argentina will provide your Dad with the perfect setting to meet the indigenous Guarani people and learn, first-hand, the artistic traditions passed down through generations.
They’ll also have a chance to trek Peru and meet up with Peter Frost, an English archaeologist, author and expert on Inca archaeology. Later, they’ll explore Macchu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca when walking In the Footsteps of the Incas.
