Four exciting visits this Heritage Day with Citiliner
Come 24 September, come Heritage Day! Yes, a day dedicated to us: Our histories, our cultures and the heritage that makes us most proud.
Here at Citiliner, where you can buy affordable bus tickets to all major South African cities (and most places in between), we’re looking out for affordable things to do to get the most from Heritage Day on a budget.
Here then are four of those if you’re looking to save!
Heritage Day at the Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg
Celebrating Heritage Day is as much about celebrating history as it is about culture. After all, history is what informs us about who we are and who we’ve become. The Apartheid Museum is a great place to get to know a bit more about our own history and how our past, in many ways, constructed our heritage and defines our story.
An affordable, insightful and educational trip that is worth any day’s visit. Adults should not pay more than R100 to enter. Book your Citiliner bus ticket to Johannesburg and explore the city.
Head to your local botanical garden or green space
Although not all of our botanical gardens are free, most are affordable and definitely worth a refreshing and heritage-filled visit. Be assured, it’s a great place to take in the springtime sun and soak up all that natural heritage and South African beauty.
Head to a green space that inspires, somewhere new perhaps, and arrange a picnic with family and friends. Together, make it a Heritage Day to remember!
Head to a famous monument, square or statue, and enjoy the sun while learning
Whether it’s the Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton or the Parliament Buildings in Pretoria, there are plenty of free spaces to enjoy your day and pay tribute to the history that has made us.
In Cape Town, for example, enjoy some awesome music in Heritage Square and get dancing from 3pm. Look out for similar events in your area that are light on the pocket but heavy in enjoyment!
Braai, braai and braai some more!
Heritage Day, informally known as braai day, is what it is: A day when we all come together to celebrate South Africa over the sizzling fire. And what better way to celebrate us than with a good braai? Call it what you will, in any language that makes you proud – braai’ing is unmistakably the glue that weaves us all together.
So, get on down to your local braai spot and light that fire!
Yes, an epic Heritage Day doesn’t have to mean money, money, money.
