Unfortunately, the South African long weekends in 2024 don’t fall as perfectly for extended leave as they did in recent years. Having said that, we’ve worked out the following. Open up your calendar and stick with us:
- 5 days from Human Rights Day in March 2024, gets you 12 days to the end of Easter.
- 4 days from Workers Day in May 2024, gets you 9 days off in total.
- 4 days after Heritage days in September 2024 (a Tuesday) means if you grab Monday 23 September and you have a fun long weekend.
- 7 days from the Day of Reconciliation to Christmas and New Year’s, gets you a whopping 19-day break.
So, to recap, 17 days of well-planned leave in 2024 will score you 44 days of work-free rest. Are you amped for South African long weekends in 2024 or what?
