South Africa’s smallest province is also its main economic and commercial hub. Gauteng is the scene of the major gold rushes of the 1880s and since then, it has continued to thrive and develop at an alarming rate. Its focal point is found in the city of Johannesburg. Jozi – as it is affectionately known – is electric and multicultural. A city know for its efficiency and excellent service, Jozi is light years ahead of other cities in South Africa as it boasts a wide array of diverse activities for its visitors to enjoy.
Top-rated attractions here include the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens, Montecasino Gaming Complex, Nasrec’s Soccer City, and Gold Reef City. A wonderful family outing can be had at the Bunny Park Crafters Market in Boksburg, which is on the East Rand of the province. As it only operates on the last Saturday of every month, the Bunny Park Crafters Market is quite popular amongst the public as it offers a terrific shopping and picnic experience. There are over 100 colourful stalls offering high-quality arts and crafts products; the merchandise on offer include embroidery, metal works, fabrics, toys, pet accessories, home bakes, knives, plants, and hand-made jewellery.
The aromatherapy goodies are a stimulating experience with scented candles and various brands of fragrant soaps available to purchase. Once you have enjoyed a shopping experience like no other, the market has a lovely garden where the public can have delicious picnics with their families. This is a great way to keep the children amused and entertained as they can have fun taking pony and camel rides, get involved in face painting and sand art, as well as exploring the numerous exciting farm yard activities available. There are also braai facilities available in the garden making shopping and picnicking at the Bunny Park Crafters Market an enjoyable outing for each member of the family.Where: Southvale Road, Boksburg, East Rand, Gauteng.
