Celebrated annually on the second Sunday in May, this day is dedicated to all the mothers, grandmothers and motherly figures in our lives. It is a day to pamper them, give them some much needed time out and make sure they know just how much they are appreciated and loved. Whether it's something as simple as a cup of tea in bed with a hand-written card, or a special day out, be sure to spoil your mom this Sunday.
At City Sightseeing, we have some amazing specials for moms, their girlfriends or the whole family to enjoy together.
If the lady in your life loves her wine, we have two fabulous options to choose from.
Available from Friday to Sunday this week, we are offering an excellent special of only R450 (x2 adults), which includes a full day onboard the Blue Route Scenic Safari from the city centre, a wine tasting at Groot Constantia, as well as the opportunity to stop off at Beau Constantia and Eagles Nest. This is a great option to gift mom so that she can take the day off, spend time with her girlfriends, relax in the beauty of the vineyards and let our expert drivers be her designated chauffeur for the day.
Delicious crisp South African wine at Groot Constantia
This fabulous full-day tour out of the city is the perfect treat for moms who love the countryside, the vineyards, and of course a delicious glass (or few) of South African wine. The tour departs from Cape Town in the morning on our luxury air-conditioned coach and heads directly to the Franschhoek valley to join the Franschhoek hop-on hop-off wine tram and bus. There are two hop-on-hop-off lines, each visiting various wine estates in the Franschhoek Valley. You can join the tram or the tram bus around the estates which depart hourly allowing you to enjoy each estate at your leisure. At R499 per adult, R295 per child you can enjoy a family day out together to treat mom. Or if you’d like to book mom a day out with her friends, we have an amazing special of R1880 for 4 adults.
For the moms who love the water, we are offering a great breakfast special cruise on our Red Boat. You can choose to have breakfast on the decks at Canal Café at the Harbour Bridge Hotel (served until 10:30 am) or at Bootlegger Restaurant at the Two Oceans Aquarium (served until 2 pm). For only R89 per adult, R65 per child, or our family package (2 adults, 2 children) of R299 this will be a great treat for mom. Even better is that mom will receive a free coffee with her breakfast. After breakfast, it's also important to note that your tickets are valid all day allowing you to hop on and off and explore the Battery Park stop or simply cruise and enjoy the spectacular views from the boat, which are not often seen from the road.
Mom on board
If you as a family are wanting to treat mom to a day out with the whole family, hop on board our famous Red Double Decker open-top bus and combine the day out with a visit to Africa's largest bird sanctuary, the World of Birds. This hop-on, hop-off tour allows you to explore the best of this city, at your own pace. With over 30 stops across 3 different routes, you'll have plenty of opportunities to hop off the bus and explore the Cape Town landmarks and attractions that appeal to you most. From the Waterfront, the city centre to the beautiful white beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, all the way to the marina of Hout Bay. A family package price of R750 for 2 adults, 2 kids, sees you enjoying a full day out, and entry to the World of Birds, where you can experience over 3000 birds, across 100 different walk-through aviaries as well as the interactive monkey jungle.
World of Birds
If you’re on the above route you may want to stop off at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (Stop 20). Moyo Restaurant is offering fabulous specials for Mother’s Day. Choose from one of the following:
● Breakfast Special with tea or coffee for only R99 per person
● A Lunch buffet for only R275 per person
● Three-course lunch set menu for R250 per person
● Picnic Pods are available for R265
After a delicious meal, go for a stroll through the gardens with mom.
If your mom loves her tea, there is no better place to celebrate the beauty of motherhood with a warm and rosy welcome in the heart of the Mother City. Visit the iconic “Pink Lady” of Cape Town and enjoy the famed delicious high tea at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel (Stop 15). While you dine on sumptuous cakes, pastries and sandwiches stacked in tiers, live piano music sets the scene, as you sip on one of the many varieties of teas on offer. Seating times are available at 12 pm and 3 pm and the price is R395 per adult and R215 per child. This will be one Mother’s Day treat she will not forget. Be sure to book a table in advance.
High Tea delights
Jewellery Making Workshop
For the ladies who love diamonds, there is no better way to treat mom on 8 May at The Diamond Works Jewellery Making Workshop. The 2-hour session for R650 per person, at either 11 am or 2 pm, includes bottomless bubbly, chocolate truffles and a guided introductory level jewellery making class to make your very own freshwater pearl earrings and pendant set in sterling silver. A great experience for mom and daughter, friends and family, and even better that you get to leave with your very own jewellery pieces.
Whatever your plans are for the coming weekend, be sure to treat your mom from sunrise to sunset, and make her feel special and loved all day long.
