Celebrate April Fool’s Day in Style at Paul Cluver

Mar 2017

Less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town this celebration on Saturday 1 April 2017 promises to be a fun day out for young and old. Choose to self-drive or, even better, embark on a scenic train trip from Cape Town to Elgin.

The train departs from Cape Town Station at 9am, with a second collection point in Somerset West. The journey should last no more than two hours, and a few treats along the way will make for a fun and memorable journey. Upon arrival in Elgin you’ll be met by a fleet of John Deere tractors ready to transport you to your final destination. The train will then depart for Cape Town at 4pm.

While the adults sample the superb cider and wines on offer, the kids will be in their element as they get stuck into the myriad of old school fun and games (think bobbing for apples, sack race, egg and spoon race to name but a few). This is the perfect opportunity for mom and dad to unwind a bit as the young ones are kept entertained in the supervised kids’ area. 

Keep hunger at bay with the selection of artisanal gourmet fare on offer. Freshly home baked apple crumble, a selection of fine cheeses, charcuterie and gourmet sandwiches are guaranteed to add to the fun and festivities of the day. Live music adds the final touches to what promises to be the ultimate outing.
