Stage 5 is expected to end on Saturday morning at 5 am, and Stage 4 will kick off at 5 am on Sunday.
Stage 3 will begin on Monday at 5 am, and will likely continue for the rest of the week.
Power utility Eskom says it's experiencing constraints from its diesel suppliers affecting Open Cycle Gas Turbines at several power stations.
It says this weekend's power cuts will be used to restore pumped storage dam levels.
It's warned that higher stages may be implemented next week, should diesel supply uncertainty persists.
