You can miss Johannesburg if you don’t have too many days for your vacation in South Africa. Most of the locals suggest not to step out in the evenings – so there’s actually nothing much to do. Instead you can spend more time in Kruger and Capetown.
If still, you would want to visit Jo’berg for whatever reasons – then please make sure you stay in a luxury hotel. We stayed in the Palazzo Montecasino.
As we stayed in MonteCasino, we also got to see the MonteCasino mall & the Bird Park which are right next to the hotel. Or you can also stay in the Sandton area which has some very good hotels .
Make sure you hire a driver to drive you around or hire a car for a self drive.
There is a Lion Park and Cheetah Park – around one hour drive from Jo’berg – Please make sure you check the timings, entry fee and all the details before you plan your visit. An early visit to the Cheetah park is better.
You can visit Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton city and roam around the Sandton city mall for some shopping.
