Many visitors to Johannesburg don’t stop to see what the city offers – they’re missing out.
Jump on a cheap flight to Johannesburg from London and discover why there are plenty of reasons to stay in the city. As well as losing yourself in the huge malls, there’s the trendy suburb of Melville with coffeehouses and bars to investigate. The city centre is lively and the culture well worth checking out.
There are cultural insights aplenty in Jo’burg. Find out about the country’s turbulent history at the Apartheid Museum, and experience township life in Soweto. And of course, South Africa is a wildlife watcher’s paradise with the world’s most magnificent creatures congregating on Africa’s stage.
