Johannesburg Places to Visit & See


Johannesburg is an interesting city. Johannesburg is famous for a lot of things such as gold, world cup  etc. but much older thing that it’s famous for is the ancient human hominid remains about an hour to Johannesburg, called Cradle of Humankind… A must see place. Pretty much interesting and one of the best things to do in Johannesburg.

Then comes the Apartheid Museum where you may see the dark years of the Apartheid; the most populous black urban residential area and also the most metropolitan Soweto and  Soweto's Hector Pieterson Museum... Old Fort and Constitutional Hill was the infamous site where people - including Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi - who raised their voices against apartheid were incarcerated.

If you want to have look at the early gold mining years, then, the Gold Reef City is the place to visit. For getting closer to the wildlife of South Africa, take your time to visit Kruger National Park, Lion and Rhino Nature Reserve and Johannesburg Lion Park. For parks & gardens, visit Johannesburg Zoo and its Lake Park, Johannesburg and Sisulu Botanic Gardens.

Hiking in the nature reserves also recommended. Close to Johannesburg, Soweto - an acronym for South Western Townships - its genesis lies in the segregationist planning of South Africa. Later it was also the hotbed of many political campaigns and anti-apartheid movements. Visit and see Newtown's Market Theatre, experience the festivals and events specific to South Africa, enjoy cabarets, live South African jazz and hip-hop and spend time at the blues bars. Take in a show at the Liberty Theatre on the Nelson Mandela Square, cast your eye across works of art in one of the galleries in Nelson Mandela Square.
