Best things to do and see in Johannesburg

The biggest city in South Africa has something for everyone. Art lovers are sure to appreciate the thousands of works in the halls and gardens of the Johannesburg Art Gallery, found in the heart of Joubert Park. The Gallery is supposedly one of the largest public collections in Sub-Saharan Africa. Also worth a visit is the Maboneng Precinct, an innovative suburb with cafes, restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. It’s particularly popular on Sundays when the Arts on Main, full of pop-up galleries and street art, is hosted. Foodies are going to want to spend time exploring the Neighborgoods Market, where you can sample anything from paella to pad thai to tacos from the cafeteria-style wooden tables on the outdoor terrace, with sweeping views of the city. History lovers will want to spend time exploring Soweto’s Vilakazi Street, which was once the heart of the country’s apartheid movement and other important turning points in history. Culture enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the first-ever hominid fossil was discovered. Nearby is the Lion and Safari Park, an animal sanctuary where you can pay for a guided game driver.
