With Youth Day falling on a Sunday, South Africans gets the Monday, June 17, off. Shaun Pozyn, Head of Marketing at kulula.com shares some things travellers can do this weekend.
The Hermanus FynArts Festival is well worth the hour-and-a-bit drive from the Mother City. It’s a 10-day programme of theatre, music, workshops, talks and presentation with dozens of experts in their fields. Choose from a tutorial on advanced cellphone photography, in-depth examinations of the works of William Kentridge or ceramics workshops. There’s even a session on beach calligraphy for teenagers, which enables them to turn sea-sand into art. Wine-farms in the area are participating in the festival with the Art & Vine Tour, a programme of guided art exhibitions, wine-tastings and food-pairings. Patrons can be safely shuttled to each one in a Wine Hopper, freeing grown-ups from worries about drinking and driving.
