calender-iconWhat are the Top Things to Do in Johannesburg?


When you book cheap flights to Johannesburg from Cape Town or other South African cities, these are a few highlights that you can look forward to on your trip:

  • Gautrain – this marvel of ingenuity is Africa’s first world-class, modern rapid rail and bus service for Gauteng. If you have arrived by plane on one of our flight specials to Johannesburg, this is one of the best ways to travel into the city. 
  • Apartheid Museum – this is an absolute must-see showing the rise and fall of apartheid. The museum makes use of film, text, audio and live accounts to provide  insight into the architecture and implementation of the apartheid system. The eeriest of the entire museum is a small chamber in which hang 131 nooses, representing the 131 government opponents who were executed under anti-terrorism laws.
  • Gold Reef City – this is an all-round venue for the whole family. It features scary rides, a Victorian funfair and various reconstructions, including a bank, pub, brewery and newspaper office. Visitors can watch the wonders of a gold pour, and see an entertaining performance of ‘gumboot’ dancing. There are loads of places to eat and drink, plus the Gold Reef City Arts & Crafts Centre and an craft and souvenir shop.



Gold Reef City – Johannesburg


  • The Loft – this is a  warm, vibey venue with the feel of a New York bistro. It is a place full of bright modern prints and colourful chandeliers. There is a small mezzanine floor at the back with a couple of tables and chill-out sofas. A hip crowd packs in to enjoy mostly exotic meaty treats such as springbok wrapped in bacon, and ostrich carpaccio.
  • Montecasino – a visit to the casino is a great way to spend a night or day out. Montecasino is Joburg’s ‘Las Vegas.’  It is a shopping and entertainment centre based around a large casino. It includes a recreated Tuscan village complete with an artificial early-evening sky, fake trees, cobbled pavements, hilltop towers and even a vintage Fiat. There are often live shows and theatre performances here so be sure to check what’s on before you visit.

time-iconWhen Is The Best Time Visit Johannesburg


The best time to visit Johannesburg is during summer (November to March) when the days are hot and ideal for outdoor activities with a quick, cooling thunderstorm in the afternoon. 

Fast-paced and alive, Johannesburg boasts the fastest drivers, the best nightlife, fabulous restaurants, an array of tourist attractions, incredible music venues, luxury and budget accommodation, and so much more! Unfortunately, it also has inflated flight prices during the summer months.
