Discover the multitude of tourist attractions Johannesburg has to offer

Johannesburg is a bustling city with business on its mind. It is fondly known as the City of Gold – literally because it was founded on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand ridge and boomed after the discovery of gold in the area. But also because this is the economic powerhouse of Africa. Fortunes are made, traded and flaunted, all in a day. There is, however, another side to Johannesburg. One that often gets overlooked. It is the heartbeat of Africa, a mesmerising melting pot of culture, driven by the diverse and colourful people that call this city home. There is an abundance of tourist attractions an entertainment that is simply waiting to be discovered.

Exploring the city itself, you can pay a visit to the Carlton Tower, the tallest building in Africa, view the Bohemian style architecture of Melville, and admire the opulent homes in Houghton. Other tourist attractions include Constitution Hill, built on the Old Fort Prison, where both Nelson Mandela and Ghandi were incarcerated, and the fascinating Museum Africa.

Also in the confines of the city, is Soweto, the birthplace of the apartheid struggle, and now a cultural hotspot. The Lesedi Cultural Village, that celebrates the different traditional African ways of life, and the Cradle of Humankind, where life as we know it started, are also major tourist attractions.

What would a visit to Africa be without seeing the famed wildlife up close? Johannesburg is surrounded by a multitude of outstanding game farms and safari parks where you can even pet a lion cub or feed a giraffe! If your idea of a wildly goods time, is something different, you can always visit the Gold Reef City theme park or relax at the luxurious Sun City.
