Bachelors Ideas in Joburg!


With spring here and summer on its way everyone I know is getting married (ok this may also have a little something to do with the fact that everyone I know is in their mid to late 20’s) but nonetheless this got me thinking about the kinds of bachelor parties I’m in for over the next few months and which ones I’d actually enjoy. So here it is, a list of some great bachelors ideas all conveniently from It’s a Date


Giant Character Suits
Not many of us have the girth worthy of a Japanese wrestler, but you don’t need to weigh in excess of 400kg to do a little Sumo on your bachelors with these padded sumo suits. If Japanese is not your thing then how about a chicken or kangaroo or even a “Supersize Me” Fatty?

Beach Bums Bachelors
Rent a spacious indoor arena which boasts 4 volleyball courts, DSTV, fully licensed bar, poker room, kitchen serving light meals and Billiards tables. This idea is appealing because you don’t have to worry about weather even if you’re playing beach volleyball, soccer, touch rugby or tug of war. Braai’s can also be included for a small extra fee.

Acrobranch Fun
A new phenomenon, Acrobranch is taking Joburg by storm so why not give it a try for your bachelors. Acrobranching is basically endurance testing yourself for fun and the best part is that it all takes place up in trees. Imagine a military fitness test but suspended in the branches of tall trees (with a harness). Acrobranch is great for the whole family but they have a fantastic adult course for bachelor type occasions.

Bells and Whistles
This is the all-singing, all-dancing inclusive package that will give the Bachelor and his mates an unforgettable experience, and includes climbing the Via Ferrata, a double pitch abseil, dinner for the hungry, overnight accommodation in the Mountain Lodge and breakfast the following morning. Need I say more!

Crazy Bachelors
This is the ultimate fun day for any “doomed groom”. A variety of options are available, with a choice of packages to suit every pocket. There are seven options with various prices all offering a combination of go-karting, archery and paintball. Some of the options also include spit braai’s etc making this a winner in my opinion.

All of these options can be conveniently booked through It’s a Date. Visit their site for more information and call them for a custom package to suit your needs.
