Johannesburg

Explore a dynamic and welcoming city in Jozi

Your bespoke Johannesburg holiday will introduce you to one of Africa’s biggest and most dynamic cities. Known as ‘Jozi’ to the locals, this is South Africa’s El Dorado, built on gold deposits. Today you can unearth Johannesburg’s thrilling and diverse cultural scene in galleries and clubs throughout the city.

Johannesburg is a city of two halves. It bears the traces of South Africa’s turbulent recent past, encapsulated at the sombre but essential Apartheid Museum. The city is also taking a leading role in shaping its own and the country’s future. Downtown areas such as Maboneng have undergone impressive regeneration and glittering skyscrapers tower imposingly above traditional local markets.

Our expert guides can design your Johannesburg holiday to match your interests. We can even arrange guided walking tours to discover the vibrant street art scene. Shoppers can browse the rails in the boutiques of Sandton City or the Rosebank Mall, while Johannesburg’s astonishingly rich array of restaurants will sate any appetite.

If you intend to explore other parts of South Africa, an hour’s drive will bring you to Pretoria. Here the tree-lined avenues turn a beautiful shade of mauve during spring, giving the city the sobriquet Jacaranda City. This is the starting point for some of South Africa’s most renowned rail journeys.
