Father’s Day 2013 events in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
He’s your pillar of strength and the gruff heart of the family … he’s your dad and he deserves to be spoilt with a variety of amazing Father’s Day events in Cape Town on Sunday 16 June, 2013.
Whether you’re making his Top Gun dreams come true with a helicopter ride over the Peninsula, indulging his inner wine lover with a tasting at the Nederburg Wine Estate in Paarl or pampering him with a spa treatment or two at the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa, there is plenty for your dad to see and do on his special day.
