During October and November every year Joburg is turned into a riot of deep purple with the Jacarandas in full bloom. From a high vantage point like Munro Drive or the Westcliff steps, the whole of northern Johannesburg from the Parktown Ridge to Sandton, is tinged with a dramatic blanket of blue. Join the Johannesburg Heritage Trust for a walk on Saturday afternoon 26th October. Meet at 2pm at the Hope School, Pallinghurst Road and walk the streets of Westcliff, see the historic homes of Johannesburg’s Randlords and entrepreneurs, the famous stairs (210 of them built in 1922 by unemployed miners) and of course the carpets of Jacarandas.
