Johannesburg tours will uncover a goldmine of activities

Johannesburg, the largest city in South Africa, is not traditionally known as a tourist destination. The truth, however, is that this business mecca of Southern Africa exists as a beautiful city with a vibrant soul and many hidden gems waiting to be discovered by eager tourists. There are many Johannesburg tours available, ready to transport you to a magical land of beauty, fun, excitement and downright splendour. Explore a world rich in culture, full of wondrous sights and buzzing with an energy it cannot contain.

With its location on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills, Johannesburg was founded after the discovery of gold. The subsequent boom transformed the initial small mining settlement into what is today the hub of Africa. This transformation can be followed at the Museum Africa, which also houses the largest rock art collection in the world. Other places of interest you will encounter on Johannesburg tours are the bustling neighbourhood of Hillbrow, the Carlton Tower – the tallest building in Africa, the Bohemian style architecture of Melville with its numerous restaurants and bars, the opulent homes in Houghton, and Constitution Hill, built on the Old Fort Prison, where both Nelson Mandela and Ghandi were incarcerated.

There are many other Johannesburg tours which do not only stick to the confines of the actual city, but take you out to the surrounding areas which are equally magnificent. Visit Soweto, the birthplace of the apartheid struggle, entertain the whole family at Gold Reef City, or visit a game park or even the Cradle of Humankind.
