Johannesburg, or the “City of Gold” as it’s sometimes called, is South Africa’s largest city and remains the country’s financial and commercial heart. Our Johannesburg City Tour forms the base of this day trip, and will give you a taste of the “Rainbow Nation” at work in Sandton and downtown Johannesburg. The Northern suburbs can be viewed from our vantage point after which we drive into the bustling Hillbrow area, the most densely populated part of the city. Crossing over the Nelson Mandela Suspension Brige into downtown Johannesburg we stop to visit “The Top of the Carlton” for a panoramic view of Jozi. We also stop at the Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown where a variety of African arts, crafts, curios and souvenirs are sold.
- We will collect and drop off from several Johannesburg locations as required:
- O R Tambo International Airport
- Johannesburg or Sandton Hotels and Guesthouses.
- Johannesburg or Sandton Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs).
Upon completing our tour of Johannesburg as detailed above we arrive at Constitutional Hill, the new home of the Constitutional Court, the protector of all South Africans’ basic rights and freedom. Constitutional Hill is also the site of Johannesburg’s old Prison Complex The Fort, known as No.4, where thousands of people were brutally punished before democracy prevailed in 1994. Many of South Africa’s leading political activists such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were detained here.
