Heritage Day: Events and Things to Do to Celebrate Our Heritage

Group of people visiting Cradle of Humankind

We have a wonderful blend of cultures that make up our proudly South African Heritage. From our natural wonders and mineral resources, to our rainbow nation and colourful celebrations.

Uniquely South African Things to Do This Heritage Day

The Cradle of Humankind

Accepted as the place where humankind originated, this is not only part of our heritage, but it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the caves here display the largest collection of San rock art in South Africa.

Kirstenbosch Gardens

These majestic gardens are a nod to the unparalleled landscape in which we live. This is another South African heritage site which we share with the rest of the world. Kirstenbosch Gardens is yet another UNESCO heritage site.

Cycads in Limpopo

This magnificent species of cycads can only be found in the area of the Bolubedu people – the only matrilineal dynasty in South Africa. They are named after Modjadji – the Rain Queen.

Vilakazi Street, Soweto

South Africa’s most well-known township, Soweto is a vibrant place to visit. It boasts the only street in the world to have been home to two Nobel laureates, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Other attractions include the Hector Pieterson Memorial, and the Walter Sisulu Square (also known as Freedom Square).

How Does Gap Cover Work?

We are often asked, “What is Gap Cover?” To put it simply, Gap Cover is short-term insurance, which covers the difference between what your medical aid pays and the rates charged by medical specialists. Gap Cover is not an alternative to medical aid.
