Johannesburg

Commonly referred to as Joburg or Jozi, Johannesburg is a thriving metropolitan home to some of South Africa's largest business ventures. Today, there is no shortage of things to do in Johannesburg, a lively city that nearly 4.5 million people proudly call home.

Located north of the city center, the neighborhood of Sandton is considered "Africa's richest square mile." Stop by Nelson Mandela Square for a photo next to Mandela's 6-meter-tall statue, then venture to over 90 shops, including high-end retailers like Burberry and Prada.

If you're wondering where to go in Johannesburg for an African wildlife experience, plan a trip to the Johannesburg Zoo. Founded in 1904, the zoo covers nearly 55 hectares of land and contains over 320 species of animals. Or, head to Lion Park where you can take a guided night drive to see animals in their natural habitats or participate in playtime with lion cubs.

For context into South Africa's segregation history, visit the Apartheid Museum, just south of the city center. There are 22 permanent exhibits, like that of photographer Ernest Cole featuring telling images of life under apartheid. Soweto, one of Johannesburg's remaining apartheid townships, stands today as a place of community and perseverance. Plan a tour to better understand the city's past and the stark differences in its class structure.

Whether you're visiting Johannesburg for business or leisurep, end your day with a stunning view of the city 50 stories high at The Carlton Centre's "Top of Africa."
