Things to do over the Easter weekend in Joburg

March 2021

The Easter weekend is all about hunting for delicious chocolate treats and marshmallow eggs that the Easter bunny delivered overnight. We did some research and have found additional treats and spoils to enjoy as a family over the long weekend.

Easter Egg Hunting Time

Firstly, City Sightseeing has some fabulous specials over the Easter weekend where you can hop on board with us.  Yes, hopping like an Easter bunny too.  Fun for one and all.  Be sure to keep updated with the weather, as we may not operate in adverse conditions.

Enjoy a Chocolate Feast at the Junction 21 Easter Chocolate Festival in Boksburg

Over the Easter weekend, this indoor market is offering a spectacular and delicious Easter Chocolate Festival!  From the mouth-watering display at the entrance with chocolate rabbit feet to the food court communal area, where chocolatiers will display their most delicious offerings. The most fantastic news is that they are offering free entrance and Easter activities for the whole family.

The Bunny Hop Haven (Observatory)

Now there’s nothing more apt than the name of this beautiful sanctuary, right? It’s a small haven for rescued exotic pets and small farm animals as well as an educational play centre. Small and big kids alike can enjoy the enclosures while gently holding and feeding the bunnies. Other animals include goats, warthogs, ducks, chickens, cats, turkeys, and tortoises.  What a treat this will be for the kids on the Easter weekend to take a selfie with a bunny.

Pack a picnic and enjoy time at Zoo Lake

Located at Stop 2 you will find Zoo Lake.  A firm favourite among “Joburgers”, the park and lake are enjoyed by joggers, dog walkers, and families enjoying a sunny picnic. Your kids will love the rowboats on the lake.  Pack a picnic basket, sneak in some extra chocolate treats and enjoy a leisurely day on the lawns.

Lake Fun

Egg-citing times ahead over the long weekend in Jozi.  Hop on board, or hop on over to one of the activities and excursions listed above.  Are you egg-cited yet?
