Does it feel like you’ve run out of interesting outdoor activities to enjoy in the Mother City? You’ve done them all and now you’re just working your way through the list again? Let us introduce you to Vine Bikes, a fun new way to explore the Cape Winelands!

What is an e bike? 

An e-bike, or electric bike is a bicycle with assisted battery power. You still have to peddle and you’ll still get your steps in, but the activity is not so strenuous because the bike helps you to peddle. This is a great way to take in the beauty of your surroundings! You’ll see more than you ever would in a car, but also won’t end up hot and sweaty from too strenuous a ride.

ADRENALINE CENTRAL
If the thrill of silver adrenaline pumping through the veins rivals any subsequent notion of a good time, an adventure-filled bachelor/ bachelorette party may be just the thing for you or your soon-to-be-married mate.

PUB DINNER AND POOL
For those getting married for the second time or who just can’t be bothered with all the fuss of a planned bachelor party, the pub dinner and pool option may be the ideal laidback, no-fuss alternative to a raucous night on the town. In this light, Cape Town’s long-standing traditional British pubs become the perfect setting for a casual supper and a few pints of frothy beer. There are countless drinking holes to choose from, but our recommendations are the Southern Suburb’s Forries, Table View’s The Royal Oak or the city centre’s The Fireman’s Arms. Afterwards, treat yourself to another male-bonding staple: the pool bar. There are more than enough dingy halls and swanky tables to suit any group, including The Shack or one of the many Stones. Queue up that shiny eight ball and enjoy your night.

CAMPING
Camping is always a classic, and somewhere deep in the woods or out in the mountains you are sure to find the ultimate location for an outdoorsy guy’s bachelor bash. The Western Cape’s many natural wonders afford any lover of the great outdoors a variety of camping options, but if you really want to leave the hustle and bustle of town behind we recommend you make a beeline for the dramatic scenery of Tankwa Karoo National Park. Grab the tent and sleeping bags, pack the cooler full of ice-cold beer and braai-ready meals and head out onto the open road; the park is at it’s most vibrant during spring. Sitting around an open fire, your best mates all around and the stars glittering above, you’ll realize that the craziness of a bachelor’s party is insane. Hearty food, old friends and lively conversation are all that’s necessary for a great time away from the city.

BEER TASTING AND THE JOLLY ROGER PIRATE SHIP
For all the silly boys out there (we know there’s a man-child in every group), why spend your last days of singledom trying to act like adults? You’ll have to shape up for marriage soon enough, so let that last evening be the most foolhardy of all. Start the afternoon sipping and swirling at the famous Newlands Brewery; let your guide walk you through the hint of ‘delicate banana’ flavours in Black Label or the ‘dark, sweet caramel undertones’ in Castle Milk Stout. It’s alright if you happen to snicker; we know you’ve drank your fair share and never tasted the banana and caramel! Afterwards, pick up a few six-packs and hop on the Jolly Roger Pirate Boat at the Waterfront for a night on the high seas (it’s free to bring your own alcohol onboard during winter, but during the high season, a corkage fee may apply). The minimum charter time is two hours, but if your budget allows, sail until the early hours of the morning. If you are still up for a party after, head to the infamous Long Street for an end-of-the-night round. Tours of the Newlands Brewery cost R80pp and run from Tuesdays to Fridays at 10am, 12pm and 2pm and on Saturdays at 10am and 12pm. The price includes beer tastings and two free drinks. Prices to charter the pirate boat on a night cruise begin at R4000. Bring your own DJ or other entertainment, and book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Bachelor Party Ideas and Activities in South Africa

GETAWAY ON A HOUSEBOAT
Hint hint: we think this stag party idea may become one of the most exciting options out there! If you’ve got a little extra money and a weekend to spend, consider renting a houseboat atop the azure waters in the SANParks West Coast National Park. While there are cheaper chalet rentals on offer in the reserve, a bachelor weekend mandates a bit of a splurge. Accordingly, take your pick of the Larus houseboat (accommodates up to six people) or the Nirvana houseboat (up to 24 people) for a truly wow-weekend. With on-board braai facilities, an open dining area and stunning views aplenty, the stage is set for the ultimate getaway vacation right in the Mother City’s own backyard. There is also plenty of water activities available in the area like kayaking, swimming and kitesurfing. For more information on rates, call the West Coast National Park.

INDOOR ROCK CLIMBING
Nothing gets a bachelor party going like a healthy dose of adrenaline. Round up the boys and head straight to HangTime Gym, Cape Town’s latest addition to the indoor rock climbing scene. Challenge each other to climbing routes of varying difficulty and see who comes out on top. Then, if you’re feeling a bit brave you can try the 13m monster wall, the highest of its kind in Cape Town. This epic climbing experience will only set you back R175pp for parties and this includes entry, all the gear and dedicated instructors. Or, you can go on a Tuesday (Two’s Day special) and every second person pays half price. Every 21st of the month you can also capitalise on the 2 for 1 special. So get to HangTime Gym and start separating the men from the mice.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY BRAAI
Last but not least (although, this option is obviously weather permitting), a budget-friendly braai may be the perfect outing for the no-frills-attached almost-married man. Invite a few friends, buy a few kilograms of meat and simply choose the braai spot of your dreams; even if neither you nor your mates have a sizeable outdoor area, the Mother City can step in and provide countless options with unbeatable views. As you reminisce about the single life, flip steaks over the open fire, slurp down ice-cold beers and watch the sun set over the ocean, you’ll think those other bachelors partying at strip clubs and pounding down shots at pub golf seem crazy. With all the beautiful views of Cape Town, who needs wild nights or any additional eye candy? And if you’re not the most seasoned braai master in town, check out some tips from Jan Braai.
