Huisgenoot ("House Companion") [1] is a weekly Afrikaans magazine published by Media24.

Founded in 1916 as a monthly general interest magazine called De Huisgenoot, to financially support the Afrikaans newspaper, Die Burger. Later renamed Die Huisgenoot and was converted to a weekly magazine. Om 19** it amalgamated with Die Brandwag.

Focused on general interest family content, it has long had the highest circulation figures of any South African magazine. Numerous Afrikaans authors made their debut as writers of fiction and other articles for the journal over the years.

Today, the magazine is simply known as Huisgenoot and has also acquired two sister magazines, You, an English version, and a revival of the title Drum, which targets at the black readership market.
