About Johannesburg Attractions

Johannesburg is the seat of the Constitutional Court of South Africa and is also one of the largest and the most visited cities in the country. The inception of the city is rooted in the gold-rich hills of Witwatersrand Range, earning Johannesburg the nickname of modern-day El Dorado. One of the fifty largest urban areas of the world, the city of Johannesburg ranks very high among the African countries in regard to tourism. A perfect blend of art, history and natural bounties, Johannesburg tourism, makes sure you have a great week soaked in its hospitality.

Museums of Johannesburg

Your Johannesburg city tour is incomplete without paying a visit to the important museums that dot the city and its suburbs. Other than the Apartheid Museum and Mandela House Museum, there are others like Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre, Wits Art Museum, Origins Centre Museum and Museum of African Design deserve a visit.

Shopping destinations of Johannesburg

There are some interesting places to pick up souvenirs when you visit Johannesburg, Africa. Diagonal Street, Maboneng Precinct, African Craft Market and Nelson Mandela Square are places you can take a look around to see if you find something interesting to take back home.

Here are the top 5 things to see on your trip to Johannesburg.

1. The Apartheid Museum

To know the history of Johannesburg and South Africa, do visit the Apartheid Museum. Apartheid is the institutional racial segregation imposed on the native black majority by the white minority in the country, and it was very much prevalent up until the early 90s. The museum traces the trail of the oppression, struggle and the final victory through photos, artefacts, newspaper clippings and video footages.

2. Cradle of Humankind

A Johannesburg day tour to Cradle of Humankind is an absolute must on your visit. About an hours’ drive away, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the world richest site for relics of hominins, the species believed to be the direct ancestors of humans, thus earning the site its name. Do visit Sterkfontein Caves and the Maropeng Visitor Centre in the premises, and hire a guide for better understanding of the Palaeolithic history.

3. Gold Reef City

Gold Reef City is the country’s most famous attraction park. Themed on the ‘golden’ history of the Johannesburg, there are numerous thrilling rides and historical exhibits for kids and adults alike. Children will love the trampoline, ten-pin bowling alley and the Anaconda roller coaster. Grownups should not miss the opportunity of seeing the inside of a real gold mine at Crown Mines, although now very much out of use.

4. Soweto and Mandela House

Soweto is an abbreviation for South-western Townships, which shines a very broad light into how deep did racism cut into the Johannesburg. This was the area where black labourers were segregated in a planned manner and made to live far away from the main city in low shacks. This is the cradle of the South African uprising against apartheid and the struggle towards democracy, holding the eminent hands of Nelson Mandela. Do visit the Mandela House on your Soweto tour from Johannesburg for a plethora of photographs, paintings and framed documents about the family, of the society and of various recognitions he received.

5. Lion and Safari Park

At the Lion and Safari Park, animal interaction is the biggest attraction. Visitors can drive through pride of lions in caged vehicles, and see the kings and queens of the jungle in their everyday actions. You can even cuddle a cub, and hand feed other animals like giraffes and zebras.

    • Trip to South Africa

      We had seen their earlier reviews and booked M K Holidays through travel triangle for our honeymoon tour to south africa. They have arranged it extremely well. Every promises have been catered to. All the guides (they were drivers too) were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They were polite, punctual and reliable. The itinerary was very well structured. We covered most of the places and things to do, leaving a few, because of weather conditions. The cars arranged for us were very well maintained. Overall, we were absolutely satisfied and looking forward to our next interaction. One very small thing was, few information regarding our tour was delayed till the last moment. Although everything was perfectly arranged, but sharing the information well ahead in time would save us from the anxiety before our travel. The Bamboos (Guest House) was booked for us for three days stay at Knysna. However, you cannot expect a 4 star comfort at Bamboos like the other hotels but it has a different taste of its own with a homely peaceful atmosphere with a well equipped kitchen inside the room. However, we personally enjoyed this different stay at The Bamboos at Knysna.

    • Trip to South Africa

      While I found manoj ji a very nice and always accomodating person, I was not at all impressed by his management. Here is my pros and cons Pros: 1. Very well versed with the SA market 2. Provided very nice recommendations 3. Definitely will give a good price Cons 1. His management is not good 2. You have to chase him for getting the things done despite regular calling 3. He will forget to get the booking done- our hotel was not booked until the day we reached there. This really pissed me off

    • Trip to South Africa

      Place was no doubt an awesome destination. But, I really faced many issues during trip on booking fronts. Here are the details: 1. Despite having private transfers, the cab was not booked from Jburg hotel to airport. I reached airport on the very last minutes. 2. All the tour bookings for a particular day in kynsna was booked for the next day as compared to itinerary. I had to follow up 2 times. Thanks to the booking counters they allowed me on a previous day. (Cango Caves, Wildlike ranch, Ostrish Farm) 3. John benn Sunset cruise was booked on a day at 6:00 PM. I reached there at 5:50 PM and booking counters were closed and got to know later that we had to reach there 30 minutes before. No such information was imparted to us. After asking, to compensate, a same level cruise was booked in cape town at 3 PM. I reached there an hour ago and then got to know that it's booked for 4 PM and the same information was passed on to the vendor by the but nobody took a pain to inform me. I didn't wait for that for 2 hours and purchased tickets for 3 PM and those are also not yet reimbursed; provided that booking counters have reimbursed the already booked cruise tickets to the local vendor. After all this, I really can't think of recommending these vendors to anyone. It was a honeymoon tour and not even a single day passed away when I don't have to follow up for the things.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      My sister and I had the most fantastic holiday on your beautiful island. Cecil and our driver Priyankara were so hospitable. They are obviously very proud of Sri Lanka and so they should be. We fell in love with the warm, friendly people, beautiful climate, delicious food, culture, history and scenery of the country. Expect more travellers from South Africa as we have told all our family and friends of our wonderful holiday. We have been to many countries, but nothing can compare to Sri Lanka and Queenki Tours. Cecil went out of his way to ensure that all our expectations were met; in fact our expectations were exceeded. Spotting of 3 leopards in Yala National Park; Train ride to Ella; Elephant ride; hospitality of Sri Lankan people.

    There are more than 30 flights every day from Cape Town to Johannesburg, which is the fastest means of travelling. There are bus, car and train routes as well. This is quite a popular commute, so no need to worry about transportation.

    It is better to hire guides to get a clearer idea of the cultural, social and political history of the city.

    Gold Reef City, Cradle of Humankind, Apartheid Museum and Mandela House are some of the places you must visit in Johannesburg.

    English is the official language and is spoken and understood at large. The Afrikaans language is also present, derived from Dutch and Flemish.

    Among many other things, Johannesburg is especially known for its past of gold mining, followed by the era of Apartheid and then of late because of its sporting arenas and tourism options.
