Johannesburg Travel Tips

Johannesburg, Jo’burg, Jozi. A city with a lot of fun names but unfortunately not such a good image.  And that’s exactly the reason why I wanted to create this Johannesburg Travel Guide for you. Of course you should be careful while traveling, this is not different for Jozi, but we think this imago isn’t correct! Johannesburg is known as the vibrant business heart of South Africa by the locals, and is even being compared by the city that never sleeps: New York. It’s very different than Cape Town. The city has a raw edge and there is a lot of cool street art to discover! The areas Maboneng and Newtown are full of the most beautiful walls.

This city is full of hotspots, but if you want to be guaranteed of finding trendy restaurants, cool art galleries and rooftop bars you have to go to Maboneng Preninct. The area Braamfontein is another must go, where you can chill with your feet in the sand and nip on a cocktail in a rooftopbar!

For the best view you should visit the top of the Carlton Tower hotel. Had enough of the big city life and craving some nature? Spot some wildlife in Mountain Sanctuary Parc, just outside Johannesburg! In this Johannesburg Travel Guide we listed our best tips.
