Why Johannesburg?

Johannesburg is transitioning to a friendly metropolis with quirky urban attractions to substantiate its wilder and more scenic offerings. Here are a few of its best:
  • Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens
    Combining natural vegetation and rocky hiking trails with skilfully landscaped gardens, visitors must trek up to the top of its waterfall to see Black Eagles and terrific views.
  • Pilanesberg National Park
    This national park not only offers safaris galore but you can even camp here. In spite of the large meandering beasts, it’s safer than it sounds.
  • Sterkfontein
    Home to a startling number of our chimpish ancestors, it’s no wonder the fossil-rich Sterkfontein caves are also known as the Cradle of Humankind.
  • The Old Fort
    Discover the brutish conditions of a detention centre that held Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, and many other political leaders and suspected dissidents. It can prove to be a very humbling experience.
  • De Wildt Cheetah & Wildlife Centre
    This research and observation centre lets you get close to cheetahs, wild dogs, and other native creatures you may have missed on safari.
  • Apartheid Museum
    How did Apartheid feel? Upon paying admission you’ll be assigned a racial category to help you understand the gravity of the exhibits.
  • Johannesburg Zoo
    The Joburg Zoo is one of the most popular local and tourist attractions situated in the leafy northern suburb of Johannesburg. The Zoo covers 54.7 (55) hectares of land and was founded in 1904, as a piece of land donated to the public for recreational use by the firm of the late Hermann Ekstein.
