Must Visit Places In Johannesburg

With a sprawling urban area that stretches for miles, Johannesburg is the most populated city in South Africa, despite not being one of the country’s three capital cities. In a Luxury Travel in South Africa Johannesburg is often given a cold shoulder by the tourists because of the infamy that anti social activity brought to the city. But this avoidance can deny the reality is that this is the cultural heart of modern South Africa.

Johannesburg is found in the northeast of South Africa, and unusually for such a large city, once the extensive suburbs end, there is nothing but open plains and beautiful countryside. It’s the perfect base from which to explore the many national parks and animal reserves that are found in the area, and the ideal place to see the best of Africa’s most iconic animals in their natural habitats. Here is what you can do in the wondrous city of Joburg.

Luxury Travel in South Africa

  1. Visit the Cradle of Humankind– 40 kilometers northwest of Johannesburg is the Cradle of Humankind, a site that’s home to about 40 percent of human fossils on the planet. This site is also where first hominid, Australopithecus, was found back in 1924. There are 13 excavation sites which have the special distinction of being recognized as heritage sites. Exploring the Cradle of Humankind is one of the best things to do in Johannesburg in luxury travels. Aside from marveling at the fossils, you can tour the private Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve whose inhabitants include tigers, lions, sables, hippos and antelopes.
  2. Take a bicycle tour- A humble bicycle tour can help you witness an important period of South African history at the Apartheid Museum. Although a somber experience, exploring it is one of the fun things to do in Johannesburg for adults. You get valuable insights of the rise and fall of apartheid through film footage, photos and artefacts. The tour can be emotional but it’s also one of hope and showcases the triumph of the human spirit. Keep in mind that the museum’s content is graphic and not appropriate for young children.
  3. Shopping at Nelson Mandela Square- Exclusive restaurants and stores wait at Nelson Mandela Square, one of the most popular places for shopping in Johannesburg. You’ll find stores selling jewelry, accessories and fashion items as well as watches and electronics. Nelson Mandela Square also offers plenty of things to do in Johannesburg at night – read, bar-hopping and dining! Hard Rock Café and Trumps Grillhouse and Butchery are a couple of popular spots to hit.

3. Shopping at Nelson Mandela Square

  1. Explore the Constitution Hill- This former prison complex chronicle the journey of South African history from some of its darkest times to its brighter future. The infamous prison once housed famous names like Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi as well as striking mineworkers, political dissidents and ordinary folk. Today, the complex is the seat of the Constitutional Court and the home of prison museums like Old Fort, Women’s Gaol and Number Four.
