Highlights of Johannesburg



Johannesburg is a cultural hub. It rests at the epicentre of the small province of Gauteng. The economic engine of South Africa. Jo’burg or Jozi as its commonly known by locals, is the country’s largest city. It is redefined by cultural expression, colourful culinary experiences and a thriving creative scene and arts emporium which defines Johannesburg today. Truly  a modern and contemporary Pan African city.

Johannesburg is a city full of rich history emerging from the shadows of apartheid. It has undergone an astonishing rebirth. Its new cultural life has never been as dynamic, as it is now. Jo’burg was once considered a no go city and  a place to avoid. But now Johannesburg is one of the most intriguing and most hip & happening metropolises in the world.

It is unlikely you will be the victim of crime. Even though safety is a major concern. Especially in the inner city of Johannesburg. However like any major hub in the world, you need to take precautions. Be aware of your surroundings as  petty theft, pick pocketing and muggings in unsavoury areas of the city is fairly common.

However Johannesburg has one of the most friendliest people in the world. Locals as well as your guide will always advise you on what, and what not to do. Johannesburg is no more or less dangerous than most popular tourist destinations around the world. Safety is of course an issue in certain areas of the city. As a tourist, just use common sense. Don’t leave your belongings unattended. Keep your valuables out of sight. However that doesn’t mean you should ever feel unsafe in Johannesburg.

Johannesburg is a wealthy, prosperous city with an incredible infrastructure. It has modern neighbourhoods and a thriving tourism industry.  However tourists need to also keep in mind that inequality is still rife. This is the socio-economic impact for factors that breed poverty & crime in mostly township areas.

Known as the worlds largest urban forest, the city is sprawling and buzzing with energy.  Especially in trendy upcoming neighbourhoods which have undergone urban rejuvenation like Maboneng, Marshalltown, Newtown and Braamfontein.  These business & creative hubs are filled with art galleries, coffee shops, rooftop bars, fashion & shopping stores & markets. In addition there is live entertainment & music and restaurants, which are a must experience when visiting this city.

The Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill.  Now a heritage site, they showcase Jo’burg’s unique history embedded in a mix of traditional meets urban. Visit these to understand South Africa dark & fascinating history. Jo’burg is a food lovers mecca and you’ll easily find and taste authentic South African dishes everywhere. Moreover you can find cuisines from other African immigrant communities like Ghana, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Somalia and Morocco.

Whether its visiting vibrant neighbourhoods or experiencing Soweto, there is much more to see. Try visiting a wine farm just outside the city. Go on a hike. Or experience the beauty of a  tour of Johannesburg’s botanical gardens. Stopping past a few museums & art galleries in the trendy suburbs of Parkhurst, Rosebank, Milpark or Linden. And having a drink and dinner at one of the cities trendiest rooftop restaurants in the city.  You will truly discover the hidden gem that is Johannesburg and are sure of a memorable experience.
