Your Weekly Joburg Guide 

We’re absolutely loving this weather - the rain, the wind, the crisp autumn air breezing through the city. It’s only a matter of time before Joburg turns from green to gold. It’s just so magical. But one thing that’s not so magical about this change in season - allergies. We need to stock up on as many boxes of Allergex possible - stat!


Catch This Thriller

7 Days in Entebbe will hit select Ster-Kinekor, Nu Metro and Movies@ cinemas on Friday 6 April. Starring Rosamund Pike and Daniel Bruhl, this edge-of-your seat thriller involves a plane taken hostage and a daring rescue mission. Don’t miss it.

Why head far out of Joburg for a long weekend away when you can enjoy up to 30% off your stay at the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, Protea Hotel Fire & Ice!
