Articles: Johannesburg Sightseeing

Discover a hidden world of delight by going on a Johannesburg sightseeing adventure

Since the discovery of gold in the Witwatersrand area more than a century ago, Johannesburg has grown to become the hub of Africa. It is a bustling economic powerhouse that thrives on its strong business culture. With a reputation such as this, people have become accustomed to overlook the many other charms this city possesses. Doing a bit of Johannesburg sightseeing will allow you to rediscover the soul of this vibrant city – a soul alive with colourful people, a rich history and thrilling entertainment.

This is a city with many faces. Johannesburg sightseeing tours will lead you through the lively neighbourhood of Hillbrow, you will see the bohemian style architecture of Melville and have the opportunity to admire the opulent homes in Houghton. When travelling to the business centre of Johannesburg, you have to pay a visit to the Carlton Tower – the tallest building in Africa. A stopover at Constitution Hill will take you to the site of the Old Fort Prison where both Nelson Mandela and Ghandi were incarcerated. At Museum Africa you will be able to learn all about the birth and rise of this majestic city, and a visit to Soweto will not only take you to the birthplace of the apartheid struggle, but will also introduce you to a culture that is alive with hope and belief in a colourful nation.

All of this is only within then confines of the city. Travelling just outside the city will take you to more amazing places such as the Lesedi Cultural Village, the Cradle of Humankind and a host of world-class game farms and safari parks where you can see the incredible African wildlife roam in their natural habitat, including the wondrous Big Five of course – the elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros and lion.
