Destination Guide - Johannesburg
Johannesburg is South Africa’s biggest city and home to the world’s largest man-made urban forest – 10 million trees and growing. While you’re out in the fresh air visit Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum and gain insight into South Africa’s past. In the present, wander the streets and see the unique mix of African culture laced with European influence and this is reflected in the galleries, street style, restaurants and markets.
Joburg can get very hot and humid during summer (December to February). However, it stays reasonably mild during winter (June to August) with few really cold days. Spring is a popular time to visit as it’s warm, sunny and dry.
Getting there and around
The city is large and spread out so it’s worth hiring a car or a driver to see the sights at your leisure. There are many bus routes for getting around town economically. For any self transportation be aware of safety issues; it is advisable to speak to your hotel concierge or a local about routes, areas and times.
