Those that love soccer might be lucky enough to enjoy a live game at Moses Mabhida Stadium after classes. There’s plenty to do in KZN just minutes away from your place of study.
  • Gauteng – You might want to do something crazy and outrageous after that hectic exam. Drive down to Soweto and bungee jump between two cooling towers and eradicate your anxiety in the time it takes to take that leap..

  • Eastern Cape – Few things are better than being at the beach in East London. Come sunshine or rain, from Gonubie to Orient beach, the refreshing sea breeze is where it’s at. Go for a swim or take a jog along the seemingly endless coast to clear your head.
  • Tswane – Take a break from cramming and grab a bite at Pappa’s for the best of Mzansi food. You can enjoy a potjiekos with friends and relax before hitting the books again. If you’re looking for an outdoor activity, visit the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa for a memorable experience with Mother Nature.
  • North West – Who wouldn’t appreciate being at the Mooi River Mall in Potchefstroom? It’s a place to meet up with campus friends and make some new ones. Nearby, OPM Prozeksy Bird Sanctuary is home to over 200 beautiful feathered species and offers a great escape from the books.
