Johannesburg is the best place in South Africa if you’re looking for art, culture, great food and good shopping. Johannesburg isn’t too far from wildlife either; you have a few hours’ drive to Pilanesberg National Park and a day’s drive to the infamous Kruger National Park.
Johannesburg is the most popular city to travel to in South Africa in terms of coming from overseas due to it being the main international airport. When you are coming to visit South Africa, you are most likely to fly to Johannesburg before heading to your final destination so you might as well spend a few days exploring this historic city before carrying on with your trip!
If you enjoy hustle and bustle, Johannesburg is not to be missed on your next holiday. Johannesburg serves as the world’s biggest man made forest, boasts luxury shopping destinations such as Sandton City’s Diamond Walk or Gold Reef City which provides hours of family fun. Top attractions to take in while visiting this vibrant South African city include the Apartheid Museum, inner-city regeneration projects such as Maboneng, Vilakazi Street in Soweto, Constitution Hill and many more.
