The Easter long-weekend is finally here. It’s time to unwind with your family, eat hot cross buns and prepare your “where does the Easter bunny get his eggs from” speech.

If you are unsure what to do over the next four days, we’ve got you covered.

We have put together a list of five fun things you can do in KwaZulu-Natal this long weekend.

Splashy Fen 2018

Another year, another fun-filled Splashy Fen festival awaits you. The event, which is held annually in Underberg, remains a popular attraction for music lovers.  Not only can mom and dad shamelessly bop their heads to the sounds of Goodluck and Bowling for Soup, but they can do so knowing that their little ones are well taken care of. Splashy Fen’s ‘Kid Zone’ offers a safe place for your children (aged four to 12) to play. Kids can take part in an Easter egg hunt, paint their faces, relax in the “chill corner” and play with lego blocks in the game zone. A qualified teacher is also on hand to keep an eye on them. Splashy Fen festivities kick-off on Thursday, March 29, and end on Monday, April 2. Get your tickets at www.splashyfen.co.za.
