If you are looking for fun things to do in Johannesburg during autumn, then you are in luck. Johannesburg is a very vibrant city with plenty going on and plenty to do all year round. If you live in one of Live Easy’s modern luxury apartments in the city and want something fun to do as the weather starts cooling down, then here are some ideas to help you enjoy the last bit of pleasant weather before the cold truly sets in.
- Go Medieval
Ever wanted to roleplay Game of Thrones? Greensleeves is an authentic medieval experience where you can enjoy a meal and an evening out while reliving the experience of traditional European medieval feasts.
Enjoy some bawdy fun dancing, singing, and downing a mug of mead while feasting with the Baron in his court. Greensleeves is a silly and fun experience unlike anything else in the city, allowing you to do something entirely unique and different. Go with friends or with a loved one and enjoy the wholesome experience of feasting medieval-style.
- Eat Meat
If you are into meat-eating, then you should visit The Carnivore restaurant. This one-of-a-kind restaurant serves all manner of exotic meats ‒ whatever your imagination can dream up.
Not only can you enjoy delicious cuts of beef, pork, and chicken, but you could also enjoy a plethora of game meats ranging from ostrich to even giraffe and crocodile, should you so desire.
The Carnivore is a fun experience that all South Africans should take advantage of at least once, and autumn is a perfect time to do it. What better way to warm your belly?
- Enjoy Nature
The Johannesburg Botanical Gardens are some of the most beautiful gardens in the country and are open all year. However, in autumn, they are truly a sight to see. With all the leaves turning red and orange, the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens become a mysterious and beautiful paradise.
Enjoy a stroll through the gardens in the cool of the autumn air, have a picnic amidst the falling leaves, and admire the beauty of South Africa’s flora all around you as you breathe in the fresh air and wait for the cold season to come.
- Check Out The Birds
Monte Casino is home to one of Johannesburg’s best-kept secrets: the Monte Casino Bird Gardens. These bird gardens are home to, as you may have guessed, a plethora of exotic and interesting birds ‒ up to 60 different species ‒ that you can look at and interact with in a beautiful park kept in pristine condition. You can walk through beautiful pathways and even enter giant aviaries where you can get up close and personal with the birds.
The park is also home to a variety of other animals such as monkeys, antelope, reptiles, and much more. It is a wonderful day out and something certainly different to do no matter what time of year.
You can also enjoy the daily live bird show that is put on by the park keepers, where they introduce you to some of their interesting avian friends
