Johannesburg City Tour plus the Apartheid Museum
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 Bridge 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).
After our tour of Johannesburg we make a stop at the Apartheid Museum. Opened in 2001 the museum investigates the causes of the Apartheid system and the build-up to its implementation in South Africa. The effects and ultimate demise of apartheid, plus some more current South African history, is where the visit ends. Leaving the museum conveys a feeling of being freed from prison as you exit the grey pillars into the sunlight.
Note: Package excludes lunch & beverages.
N. B. The Apartheid Museum is closed on Mondays.
