When’s the best time to visit Johannesburg?

Around the area in Johannesburg

You can’t miss Melville for its pumping nightlife and range of excellent restaurants. The Maboneng Precinct is a lively urban area near the center of Johannesburg and has a wonderfully cosmopolitan feel with art galleries, bookstores, and open-air markets. Take a trip out to Braamfontein for its shops, galleries, rooftop bars and delicious eateries. Other attractions not to be missed in Johannesburg are the lively township of Soweto, a tour of the Apartheid museum, and the Playground street market.

Getting around Johannesburg

Public transport in Johannesburg is pretty much limited to the world-class Gautrain. The best idea would be to rent a luxury car from Drive South Africa, so you can explore the city in comfort, style, and at your own pace.

How long should you stay in Johannesburg?

We’d suggest two weeks. This will give you plenty of time to explore the city in your luxury rental car before hiring a 4×4 and getting out into the nature reserves and game parks to tak in the incredible wildlife. 

What to pack for your trip to Johannesburg

Summer in Johannesburg is hot, so pack cool, light clothing, sunscreen, and a hat. Winters are cold and dry, so pack in layers and be prepared for icy mornings. 

Where to stay in Johannesburg

The best areas to stay in Johannesburg are Rosebank and Melrose, as these are some of the safest areas in the city and quite affluent. Other great places to stay include Sandton, Melville, Rivonia, and Bryanston. All of these areas offer great hotels as well as guest houses.
