Public and School Holidays in South Africa

Description

EASTER WEEKEND, PUBLIC & SCHOOL HOLIDAYS 2015

Planning a family getaway? Book your dream holiday spot long 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.

If you're searching for a perfect beach destination, we've got South Africa's 3000km coastline covered. So take your pick and book a stay at one of South Africa’s top beaches.

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.
