Your Weekly Joburg Guide
Flight Centre
We don’t know what happened! One minute the kids are being dropped off at school to start the new term and the next thing we knew, the school holidays are upon us... again. Puts a whole new meaning to March Madness! We weren’t even prepared with a POA to counteract those three dreaded words that drive us a little loopy - “mom/dad, I’m bored!” But luckily, Joburg offers loads of family-friendly entertainment, all you need to do is explore to find it.
