Feast your eyes on Joburg’s purple canopy

Jacaranda time is here again


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.
