Very Good
4 - Very Good
  • Linda
“Even though 18 could go on this trip I think 16 should be the maximum”
Great trip all round
5 - Excellent
  • Carl Daft
  • From Britain
“Very well organised from start to finish. All staff friendly and professional and got to see and do a lot during the trip. Saw a big pride of lions very close up within 10 minutes on our first drive and saw all of the big five over the six days - including lots of elephants, many more than expected! Also had two separate leopard sightings which was a treat. Accommodation was clean and comfortable and meals were all good too. All-in-all a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend.”

Johannesburg — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A city founded on gold-mining, it’s no surprise that Johannesburg is a center of economic wealth. However, the success of Johannesburg not only lies in commerce, but in culture as well. Despite being set in a Savannah, a trip to Johannesburg will bring you to one of the world’s largest urban forests. Stark contrasts lie between neighbourhoods where the rich live in high-security compounds while the poor live in undesirable homes. With a population so diverse in background and affluence, there is no dominative language, though English is a common language. So what is Johannesburg? A city of contradictions. A trip to Johannesburg will show you the two sides of South Africa: urban and natural.

Travel Highlights

  • To learn the history of Johannesburg and SA, the Apartheid Museum is unmissable.
  • Constitution Hill is key attraction to visit in Johannesburg, where Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi were once held.
  • Maboneng is the hip neighbourhood right now and Arts on Main is an up-and-coming art center come Sunday Market.
  • Mary Fitzgerald Square, and the adjacent Jazz Walk of Fame, is the place to start exploring central Johannesburg.
  • The Carlton Center is the tallest building in Africa. Shop on the lower floors or shoot up to the top for the observation deck.
  • The City Hall is a beautiful example of colonial architecture.
  • Get active and head to Zoo Lake where you can run, paddle and row your way around the busy park.

Travel Tips

  • You can holiday in Johannesburg at any time of year, thanks to a great climate. Though summer months of December and January are especially beautiful.
  • Beware of petty crime and avoid walking alone or in small groups at night time.
  • Tourists are recommended to drink bottled water, though tap water is safe.
  • If you plan to visit townships such as Soweto, take a guided tour.
  • Using public transport isn’t recommended but tour buses, taxis and rental cars are all good options.
