Things to do in Johannesburg 

  1. Johannesburg's cultural scene has bloomed in recent years. Take a walk around Newtown and Braamfontein to discover some of the city's best nightlife, or see a show at the world-famous Market Theatre.
  2. Want to catch a glimpse of Johannesburg from above? Head to the observation deck at the Carlton Centre, the tallest office building in Africa.
  3. Take the chance to learn more about South Africa's turbulent history at the Apartheid Museum, a depressing but enlightening look at the segregationist regime that remained in place until 1994. The Mandela Museum, located in Nelson Mandela's former home in Soweto, is also worth a visit.
  4. Head up to Constitution Hill and take a tour of the Old Fort that once imprisoned Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi. This area is now also home to the city's new Constitution Court.

  6. Gold mining played a huge part in the growth of Johannesburg, and you can still visit former mines today. Explore Ferreira's Mine in the oldest part of the city or head to Gold Reef City, a theme park built over a closed gold mine.
  7. Discover your inner geek when you visit the Johannesburg Planetarium and the Sci-Bono Centre, both of which promise great family fun.
  8. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a trip to the tranquil Johannesburg Art Gallery. Located in Joubert Park, this gallery is home to one of Africa's biggest and best art collections.
  9. You'll find even more serenity at the Walter Sisulu Botanic Gardens, a nature reserve founded in 1982. Centred around the picturesque Witpoortjie Falls, it's a blissful place for a walk or picnic in Johannesburg.
  10.  Want to get up close and personal with South African wildlife? At The Lion Park, you're actually allowed to touch the lion cubs. You can also go on cheetah walks and self-drives through the park. Alternatively, take a day trip to Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve to see wildebeest, zebra, hyenas and birds near Johannesburg.

Eating in Johannesburg

South Africa's vibrant food culture has been forged by centuries of mixed influences, and today incorporates traditional African, Indian, Malay, Dutch, British and Portuguese flavours. 

Typical South African dishes

Braais – what we'd call barbeques – are at the heart of life in South Africa. Almost any kind of meat and fish is grilled at a braai and served with pap (cornmeal porridge), but boerewors (spiced sausage) is a particular local speciality. Biltong (dried and salted strips of meat) are a common snack and bobotie (curried mince) is another South African favourite. 

Restaurants in Johannesburg

For delicious grilled dishes and great live music, head to Katzy's in Rosebank, while Wombles in Parktown North lays claim to being the city's finest steakhouse. And in Braamfontein, Narina Trogon is among Johannesburg's best restaurants. There's plenty of international fast food restaurants too – including homegrown success Nando's, which opened its first restaurant here in Johannesburg in 1987.
