Johannesburg & Surrounds holidays

Johannesburg has a distinctly cosmopolitan African flavour, unlike Cape Town, which has a strong European feel. Ever growing in terms of its number of museums, galleries, craft markets, shopping outlets, cafes and gourmet restaurants, Johannesburg now offers visitors a rewarding two or three night stay rather than being the fly in, fly out destination that it once was.

As a city that embraces its apartheid history, we recommend a visit to the extraordinarily powerful Apartheid Museum and township of Soweto, the spiritual home of the anti-apartheid struggle. Johannesburg’s northern suburbs of Sandton and Rosebank have several luxurious hotels and Pretoria has many places of historical interest to visit including the magnificent Sammy Marks House, the modest home of President Paul Kruger, the Hero’s Acre, the Palace of Justice and Melrose House.
