For beautiful views over the city, go to the Top of Africa viewpoint at the Carlton Centre. For a closer look, take a tour with a guide through Soweto to see how some of the locals live. Soweto is a series of townships consisting of cheap and makeshift housing and infrastructure. While this area can be shocking for some, most visitors are pleasantly surprised by the lively atmosphere and fascinating culture. The district also has some wild places, so we recommend you don’t go there on your own going – take a professional tour. Experience the unique atmosphere of Vilakazi Street or visit the house where Nelson Mandela once lived. Visit other important places such as the Hector Petersen Memorial and the Regina Mundi Church.
Explore some historic parts of the city with a visit to Parktown or Newtown. There you will find historical buildings, as well as streets are lined with cafés, restaurants and shops. Walk around the northern suburbs and see where the wealthier section of society live, where you will find chic boutiques, bars and restaurants.
If you are interested in history, you certainly want to visit some of Johannesburg’s top museums. Immerse yourself in the turbulent history of South Africa at the Apartheid Museum. Take a walk on Constitution Hill and visit the prison museums for more traces of the troubled history of the city. If art is your thing then a visit to the Johannesburg Art Gallery (JAG) is definitely worthwhile; here you will find a fantastic selection of local and international art.
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, you can take a stroll through the tranquil Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden. Or if you really want to get close to nature, head to the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve where you can organize a trip to the Lion Park and see the famous wild animals of Africa.

The services and amenities are excellent. It site on a beautiful hill site of Johannesburg, next to the Zoo. The location is not very convenient, 30 to 40 minutes ride to the airport. There is no public transportation.
Proximity to the airport was the prime attraction for us however, the staff and service was excellent.
Great hotel and superb location however very pricy for what you get. We were there the night before the C19 21 day country lockdown so services slightly reduced. Service however from staff was superb as you would expect.
