What's on this school holiday in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban

Besides the religious aspect dominating this part of the year, one very important and very delicious thing stands out for us, and that one thing is chocolate! Copious amounts of delicious Easter eggs and chocolate! It's a time of year where the focus is placed on quality family time, it's a time of reflection, a time of forgiveness, love and laughter, and, let us mention this again, a time for chocolate! Ditch the diets and indulge in some extra yum with the kids.

The cooler autumn sun promotes lots of outdoor time, as the sun is less harsh, as well as lots of family cuddles when a cold front hits. It's a time of year when the weather gives us a bit of everything... and everything-weather promises tonnes of family fun at various activities, excursions and events. Here is what you should look out for this Autumn and Easter.
