Loooong Weekends – March and April 2014

Long Weekends – a popular term in South Africa (& many Western Countries) for a weekend that is at least 3 days long, due to a public holiday falling on a Friday or a Monday.  These weekends are popular times to get-away and book a mini break from the day-to-day routine.  South Africans are exceptionally good at taking advantage of these mini breaks to explore the country but it does mean that these long weekends become peak travel periods.

i love Cape TownIt’s a good idea to book a mini break for a long weekend early so as to avoid disappointment.  There are 3 long weekends coming up in South Africa in March and April 2014 and with school holidays in the mix across the country from 28 March – 6 April 2014, it’s the perfect opportunity for families to escape too!

  • Long Weekend #1:  Friday 21 March is Human Rights Day so you get Fri 21 March – Sun 23 March 2014
  • Long Weekend #2:  Friday 18 April is Good Friday and Monday 21 April is Family Day so Fri 18 – Mon 21 April is a 4-day long weekend and called the Easter Weekend.
  • Long Weekend #3:  Sunday 27 April is Freedom Day so Mon 28th April is a national holiday due to the public holiday falling on a Sunday.

St JamesThe next long weekend in South Africa is only in June 2014 so take your chances now to getaway!
