Stay with IHG and you can choose from six Johannesburg hotels, ideally situated to ensure you get the most from the city. Often known locally as Jozi or Jo’burg, this dynamic city at the heart of South Africa is evolving at a pace that is evident in the thriving economy and growing middle classes. Investment in cutting edge residential and business developments is reshaping the centre of Johannesburg, whilst the more cultural area of Newtown comes alive through its theatres, music venues, and museums, which sit beside the Nelson Mandela Bridge.
If you are in search of shopping and entertainment hot spots, you will find shiny shopping malls and elegant restaurants in the affluent Sandton and Rosebank suburbs. The Montecasino—the city’s answer to Las Vegas—is bursting at the seams with bright lights and chances to spend spend, spend. The Johannesburg Art Gallery is also worth a look if arts and crafts are your interest. For family fun the Gold Reef City theme park offers lots to do and see with the little ones, including rides, gold pouring, dancing and more. Local cuisine features African spiced chicken dishes and fish curries as well as delicacies such as springbok, ostrich.
Whilst there is certainly a lot to celebrate in Johannesburg, you may also want to pay a visit to the Apartheid Museum for an evocative glimpse into the country’s recent history. Constitution Hill is arguably one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city and a must see. In the township of Soweto you will find the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum where you can learn more about the struggle for independence.
There are a variety of township tours available if you want to explore the wider area, with popular tourist routes and more authentic experiences being amongst the offerings. Safari trips can be arranged from the city and out to Kruger and Pilanesberg National Parks, Blyde River Canyon and Madikwe Game Reserve.
