Johannesburg City plus Origins Centre
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).
After our tour of Johannesburg as detailed above we stop at The Origins Centre. The Museum has an outstanding, and fascinating, the collection of rock paintings, engravings and artifacts, but more importantly the history of South Africa is told through the art of the San people. If we want to understand the culture, spiritual beliefs, and the very essence of the Zulu and Xhosa people as they are today, we need to take a step back a few hundred years and follow the path that the rock art stories can tell us…a fascinating and eye-opening tour.
