Johannesburg in review
The locals often call it “Jozi” or “Egoli”… no matter what you call it, Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and the economic hub for the entire continent!
If you want to enjoy Johannesburg in its most natural state, head to Blyde River Canyon. There, you can see lush vegetation and tons of wildlife. There are even trails so that you can explore the area on foot. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Potholes, the rock formations that were created millions of years ago thanks to erosion.
If sporting events are more your thing, Johannesburg has plenty of them. There are plenty of rugby and cricket matches, so you can sit back and root for the home team.
For a taste of culture, head to Rosebank – an area that offers tons of stores, cafes, markets, art galleries, and night clubs. While you’re there, you can get some great deals on traditional souvenirs. The shops and markets have plenty of local treats to choose from, like paintings, rugs, and beaded artwork. If you’re looking for the perfect trinket to remember Johannesburg, Rosebank is the place to buy it.
As for accommodations, the biggest choice of hotels in Johannesburg can be found just to the east of city center. There are also plenty of Johannesburg hotels near Rosebank. If you head north towards Sandton, you will find plenty of good deals on cheap Johannesburg hotels.
