29 June – 8 July 2018 - Knysna Oyster Festival & Marathon

The Knysna Oyster Festival is probably one of the most popular annual events in the Western Cape. It is also something of a celebration of the good life and sport and has taken place every year since 1983.

The Knysna Oyster festival is spread across two weekends that promise constant fun and activities for the whole family.  The Forest Marathon (half marathon), and the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Rotary Cycle Tour, now a two-day event that is the biggest of its kind in the country.

Other mid-week events will include the Wade Bales Wine Festival, the Pick n Pay Oyster and Wine Mardi Gras, the Knysna Lyster Company Shucking Competition and sports events such as the Scottish Leader Whisky Bowls Tournament and the Protea Hotel Knysna Quays Waitron Race.

But of course the stars of the show are undoubtedly the oysters, served naked, cooked or garnished at over 30 local Tabasco Hotspots throughout the festival.

Johannesburg Hiking Club

The JHC offers great hikes in the Magaliesberg on each Sunday of the month for those that would like to get away from all the hustle and bustle of Gauteng's cities. There is no need to book for Sunday hikes - just arrive (at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time) at the meeting place (Check the full programme) on a Sunday morning, and introduce yourself to the leader of the day. Please take note that Sunday Hikes proximately involve 6 hours of hiking with an one hour lunch break in between

I joined the Johannesburg hiking club which is amazing for individuals and families. They are very well organized and split you into groups depending on your skill level. Worth sharing if people love hiking but too nervous to go out alone.
