South Africa - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Johannesburg

Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city and economic centre. For most travellers, Johannesburg is just a stop-over on their way to or from South Africa. However, it offers so much more to the discerning traveller—a fusion of chic sophistication and rustic, inner-city vibe born of Africa’s finest creative minds. Modern African art meets designer trend, and the results are striking.  From the inner city walking tours’ street art and graffiti to the re-invented university suburbs, the rejuvenation exposes a vibrant urban life. Braamfontein’s Constitution Hill, art galleries and restaurants are an example of this regeneration. It is here the continent can express itself, and the results are funky, a little offbeat and captivating.

Upmarket Sandton, Rosebank and Melrose are shopping meccas, with restaurants, and activities easily located beside leafy suburbs. Soweto, once home to South Africa’s most well-loved legend, is an essential part of any visit to Johannesburg. Nelson Mandela’s house, the Hector Pieterson Museum and Regina Mundi Cathedral are part of the historical appeal of any Soweto visit, and the importance of South Africa’s turbulent past and hard-won democracy is evident. With the legacy of these heroes and the modern stadiums which stand in tribute to the importance of local sport, you are sure to see a fascinating side to South Africa.

Additional attractions include the De Wildt Cheetah Rehabilitation Centre, the gold and diamond mines on which Johannesburg was founded and Gold Reef City, the 19th-century gold mine theme park. Of huge archaeological interest is The Maropeng cradle of humankind world heritage site.
