While an entire day of shopping is a dream activity for most women, you don’t only have to shop when you’re at the mall. Here are our 5 favourite things to do.
The Barnyard Theatre
Cresta Shopping Centre, Joburg
Theatre-goers have the option of either packing their own picnic basket with their favourite treats, or ordering mouth-watering dishes from the in-house kitchen.
Sit back, relax and take in some South African talent.
Monday: NO SHOW
Tuesday- Saturday: 8pm
The Cape Wheel
The V&A Waterfront, Cape Town
Offering a 360-degree view of Cape Town, including Robben Island in the distance and the Cape Town City Skyline, the 12 to 15-minute experience is well worth it.
Open from Monday to Sunday, bookings are not necessary, and, in an effort to promote environmental sustainability, all ticket prices include a R5 donation to the Wilderness Foundation.

The Wave House
Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Durban
If you’re looking to do something different on your day out, however, they have that covered, too.
Gateway is home to one of South Africa’s top entertainment venues – The Wave House. It’s home of the mighty D-Rex, a double-point standing wave, as well as two smaller beach-break flowriders, and supertubes. A visit to this outdoor gem is a great day out for the whole family – and a chance to get active, too.
Saturday 12pm – 5pm
Sunday 9am – 5pm
The Ice Rink
Bay West Mall, Port Elizabeth
This one-of-its-kind in the Eastern Cape also has an in-house skating academy –so brush up on your skills if you’re not ready to figure skate just yet!
If skating on ice isn’t quite your thing, the rink offers ice hockey league tournaments, where you can watch an American-style game or two from the sidelines.
Monday – Sunday: 10am – 17pm
Monday – Sunday : 7:30 pm – 10:30pm
Rosebank Sunday Market
Rosebank Mall, Joburg
A wonderful experience for locals and tourists alike, the market makes for a uniquely South African shopping spree, where you’ll be able to buy all sorts of goodies you probably won’t find in stores, like African masks and vintage handbags.
Sunday: 9am -4pm
