Johannesburg has a particularly rich and tumultuous history that began with the discovery of gold. Visitors can get a fascinating glimpse into the city’s past through Johannesburg’s many museums and a visit to the iconic Freedom Park. Modern day Johannesburg is a shoppers paradise, from the upmarket Sandton Shopping Centre and Nelson Mandela Square to the fun Oriental Plaza and not-to-be-missed Rosebank Flea Market. For those in search of the adventurous side of Jozi, a kaleidoscope of nightlife and sports events and facilities present themselves, with the sounds of Qwaito and Vuvuzelas playing a uniquely South African Tune. In the midst of this concrete jungle a wide range of family friendly wildlife activities will transport you to the African bushveld and a trip to the Johannesburg Zoo is something truly special.
