The Easter holidays are upon us and a lot of us will be chucking deuces to Gauteng and migrating to other parts of the country for a young Easter turn up.

The Easter holidays are upon us and a lot of us will be chucking deuces to Gauteng and migrating to other parts of the country for a young Easter turn up. To help you on your way we’ve put together a few budget friendly things that you and the squad can get up to this Easter.

Whether you’re coasting for a bae-cation, some squad goals or just kicking it with the fam, we got you. So first things first, the mother city…. Stay with me, this isn’t as expensive as you might think. Cape Town isn’t just for the swanky and monied.
