Heritage Day September 2015


Heritage Day is the national holiday for South Africans to celebrate their heritage and for all the foreigners to join them in this celebration. Many South Africans take (or the lucky ones get) the Friday off as well and make it an awesome 4 day weekend. Some fly to visit their family, others stay home. We, at GrabaFlight, will most likely all end up together having a big braai.

So what else can you do during this long weekend? Whats happening in the big cities that’s worth a visit, or even taking a plane.
