Johannesburg is well known for its openness and energy that sets it apart from other South African cities. Locals are fiercely proud of their home town and are very welcoming and hospitable. Here’s a list that should serve as a good guide to the City of Gold, making sure you take in the best that Jozi has to offer without breaking the bank:

Have fun at the Honeydew Mazes

Honeydew Mazes is a giant outdoor maze experience promising a whole lot of fun for the whole family. In groups, you will have to find the five secret gardens and answer the general knowledge quiz. The Maze takes about 90 minutes to complete. However, there are other smaller mazes and puzzles in the courtyard which will keep you entertained.

Drive through the Nelson Mandela Bridge

The Nelson Mandela Bridge is the largest cable-stayed bridge in South Africa . The bridge starts at the end of Jan Smuts avenue and links to Constitutional Hill precinct in Braamfontein, to the Cultural precinct in Newtown in the heart of the city’s inner city renewal project. The bridge is incredibly appealing in its simplicity. However, at night the entire bridge lights up.

High tea at Lindfield Victorian House Museum

The Lindfield Victorian House Museum dates back to 1910 and have been decorated precisely over 100 years. The House offers unparalleled insights into Victorian life. The Lindfield House comprises 22 rooms and only 18 are currently open to the public. Including the dining room, library, music room, drawing room, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and pantries. Tours are conducted by owner, Katharine Love – whose family has laid claim to the house since 1967. Katharine offers fascinating insights into every room, providing details about Victorian life and attitudes.

At 50 stories, the 223 metres high Carlton Center is Africa’s tallest building in downtown Johannesburg. If you’re looking southwest you’ll see the FNB stadium (Soccer City) and on the north you can see the impressive skylines of Braamfontein and Hillbrow.
