Savanna’s #TwirraShadeProject will see custom designed shaded tree benches and wall murals around South Africa over the December period, to provide real shade for South Africans during the hottest months of the year when people are on holiday and out and about living their best lives. And they are made from a collection of the shadiest tweets from Twitter users that just need to cool down.

Kicking off with one of the shadiest of them all, the brand threw some of their own at dearest Lerato Kganyago. The local DJ and much loved celebrity, with a personality as crisp and dry as Savanna, woke up to the shadiest four seat custom bench with shade created from some of her very own clap backs, in front of her home. “Hawu, I was so surprised and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it. I couldn’t help but laugh and enjoy this crazy surprise – all I can say is #SiyavannaSouthAfrica – they see everything we do – tread lightly”, she said.

South Ahh can enjoy the extra shade around Johannesburg and Cape Town at the following locations over Summer: Melrose Arch, V&A Waterfront & Newtown Junction – rent free!
