Best things to do in Johannesburg

History Museum
“The apartheid museum is approximately 34 minute's (30km) drive from Jackal Creek. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental. The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own.”

Museum
“Set aside a few hours for this compulsory site chronicling Apartheid. The site is imbued with historical traumas but is also a beacon for progress and subversion. This old prison now houses the highest court in South Africa. There is a permanent art exhibition featuring all of South Africa's esteemed artists. A tour of the prisons that held Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Winnie Mandela is comparable to Robin Island in Cape Town. ”

“Safe and large green space, ideal for small children and their parents to walk around, not too densely filled with enclosures”

Jazz-Klub
“A live music venue with shows 4 nights a week. The food is overpriced and not very good; eat before you go and stick with drinks and music. ”

Museum
“Wits Art Museum is home to an extraordinary collection of African art, including contemporary and historical art from South Africa and art from West and Central Africa. It hosts a dynamic program of events and art exhibitions. The Museum is one of Johannesburg's premier tourist attractions, along with the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill. It is part of the Wits University Cultural Precinct, just three blocks from Nelson Mandela Bridge. WAM is in the hip, regenerating area of Braamfontein, which is also home to many students, interesting shops and places to eat. The WAM Cafe is a fun place to meet friends and enjoy delicious food and coffee. 15 minutes from Melville ”

Restaurant

“A rooftop eco-cafe, serving a range of salads, mezze platters and other light fare. The Living Room is the ideal spot to grab lunch or perch out for an afternoon. With some of the best views of Jozi’s skyline you’ll probably want to linger over a drink here until the sun sets over the city.”

Afrikanisches Restaurant

“A very large venue so easy to get a table. It is fun, African and vibey. There is also a curio shop just below. When going to Zoo Lake keep to the path around the lake and don't be too flashy.”

Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“You may think you’re able to tell your favourite beer from the rest, but you could well be caught out at the SAB World of Beer’s beer tastings. Whether you consider yourself a beer connoisseur or if you’re not much of a beer drinker at all, SAB’s experienced team will guide you through an informative, fun-filled tasting. Once a month on a Saturday, the World of Beer hosts a beer-pairing lunch. This event is almost unprecedented in an industry overly preoccupied with wine and whiskey pairings, but not with exploring and creating meals that deliberately complement the multitude of flavours found in beer. ”

Museum
“Located on an 80ha site next to the Johannesburg Zoo, in Saxonwold, the Ditsong National Museum of Military History is one of South Africa’s most undervalued attractions. It is the only one of its kind in the country, and is considered the “spiritual and symbolic home of regular and reserve soldiers and veterans in South Africa and throughout the world”.”

“Lively joint. A favourite of lots of the young and trendy Joburg residents. Just be sure to keep your cellphone tucked away, as it's also a favourite of pick-pockets.”

Arts & Crafts Store
“The most established precinct on the edge of downtown Joburg, 44 Stanley is a mixed use development that fuses downtown urbanism with a subtle sophistication. A mix of carefully-curated, bespoke stores and independent restaurants gives the centre an authenticity that runs through eating, drinking, shopping, working and living experiences. Shady arcades and green courtyards between what was once a series of industrial 1930's buildings make this a unique Johannesburg space. https://www.44stanley.co.za”

“I love the educating side of it all. It's like they have all the history of Johannesburg summarised into one huge building of a museum. ”
