Johannesburg - Gauteng Vacations

Hit the streets running when you arrive on your vacation in Johannesburg. This vibrant South African city teems with life, and visits to museums, theme parks and restaurants will all help you to engage with the friendly local population.

Major Attractions

Choose one of the large number of hotels in Johannesburg for your visit, and once you're settled, get on the move. Take a trip to the Apartheid Museum with its in-depth look at the political system that divided the country and had such a huge impact on its citizens. Go even further back in time at the Origins Centre, located on the University of Witwatersrand campus; view exhibitions, watch videos, and interact with displays about the origins of humans in Africa. Get to the Gold Reef City with the hop-on, hop-off bus, and head down a real gold mine, pan for gold, and watch liquid gold pour. Drive your Johannesburg car rental vehicle to the African Craft Market in Rosebank to pick up great bargains and mementos of your trip. Johannesburg vacations aren't complete without a taste of genuine local food, so stop by some of the restaurants in Soweto for umleqwa chicken stew, steak with spicy chakalaka relish, or morogo wild spinach.

Events and Festivals

September is spring time in South Africa, and in Johannesburg a number of festivals celebrate this delightful season. Sip South African wines at the Soweto Wine and Lifestyle Festival, take your pick of delectable foods, and browse through high-quality clothes and accessories. Also staged in September is Arts Alive, so choose from an eclectic mix of music, writing, and dance events held at various venues in the city. Jazz lovers never miss the Joy of Jazz Festival, held near the end of September; tap your toes to performances by international and local artists. August sees the Gauteng Getaway Show, so stop by there to experience adventure activities and sample some authentic African meals.
