Public and School Holidays in South Africa 2016




EASTER WEEKEND, PUBLIC & SCHOOL HOLIDAYS


Planning a family getaway? Book your dream holiday spot before the rush…

Don’t miss out on getting away for that much needed family holiday. During the December to January peak season and long weekends, particularly over the Easter break, most places along South Africa’s coast are booked a year in advance.

Living outside South Africa? It is worth noting that on public holidays banks are closed, shopping hours are often reduced and shops close for Good Friday during Easter, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

If you're looking for a beach playground, we've got SA's coastline covered. From the north-eastern shores of St Lucia to Durban and the South Coast, along the Wild Coast and the Sunshine Coast all the way to Cape Town and the West Coast, the choices are endless. So take your pick and book a stay at one of South Africa’s top beaches.
