2020 can be good. We'll share that goodness.
Latest update: 11 November 2020
Black Friday specials mean fun in and around the city for a fraction of the price it usually costs. Pack up the car and head out for a glamping adventure at three quarters of the usual price, scoot up and down the side of Table Mountain (the kids can go for free), or even make your own gin at Distillers & Union and save R150. Here are a few choice specials we sourced for you:
