Best things to do and see in Johannesburg

Built on the wealth of the 19th century gold rush, Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa. There are many sightseeing tours that are worth taking to experience spectacular views. They range from the classic ‘hop on, hop off’ open-top double-decker bus to private taxi companies that also run tour services. Many safari outings take you deep into the national park where you can get the full experience of seeing some of the most incredible and most powerful animals in their natural environment. There is something quite special in seeing an elephant wandering free, rather than in a zoo. These experiences range from a few hours to a couple of days. Booking in advance is always advised. No matter your tastes, there will be an eating experience perfect for you, remember to add that South African flavour by ordering some Chakalaka and pap.
