Best things to do in Johannesburgo

History Museum
“The apartheid museum is approximately 34 minute's (30km) drive from Jackal Creek. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental. The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own.”

With a mix of restaurants, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, art galleries, and retail and studio space, the precinct draws the inner-city public as well as the chic, art-going crowd of the city’s suburbs, bringing life back to this downtown Johannesburg neighbourhood. The area also drives Johannesburg tourism within the local and international tourist markets.”

Museum
“Set aside a few hours for this compulsory site chronicling Apartheid. The site is imbued with historical traumas but is also a beacon for progress and subversion. This old prison now houses the highest court in South Africa. There is a permanent art exhibition featuring all of South Africa's esteemed artists. A tour of the prisons that held Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and Winnie Mandela is comparable to Robin Island in Cape Town. ”

“Zoo Lake park offers one of the city’s best daytime picnic spots. Here an assortment of activities awaits visitors of every age, who can enjoy a relaxed outdoor environment with the option of paddling across the man-made lake. During weekends and public holidays the park attracts its largest crowds, lured by the wide open spaces and shady groves of trees. Spring is a particularly beautiful time for a romantic stroll under the trees and the park is very popular with dog walkers and joggers too. There is no shortage of space on the lawns for a family braai or picnic and sports enthusiasts are well catered for with basketball courts, the Zoo Lake sports club, a five-a-side soccer area and the historic Zoo Lake swimming pool. There are also plenty of activities for children. Alongside the lake they can feed the ducks, or take them rowing in one of the brightly coloured boats which are available for hire. Those who would like to try some authentic African cuisine can stop for a bite at the Moyo restaurant which looks out over the lake. Moyo serves sumptuous African cuisine in a colourful and family-friendly environment. From classic oxtail stew to crocodile pie, there’s something on the menu for everyone.”

Parque
“The 81-hectare Botanical Garden form one of Johannesburg’s vital green lungs. The land for the gardens was set aside in 1969 – at the time it was a sports field and golf driving range consisting of bare veld and no trees. Now it consists of large, grassy, open spaces scattered with trees and used by runners, picnickers and dog walkers. It hosts the occasional concert season and kite-flying competitions. Visitors enjoy its special gardens – the Shakespeare Garden, the Rose Garden, the Herb Garden, a Hedge Demonstration Garden and the main arboretum, which houses family groupings of plants and trees of South Africa and the rest of the world. The gardens contain an attractive mix of bunched indigenous and exotics surrounded by lawns, overlooking the 7,5-hectare Emmarentia Dam, which dates back to the turn of the century, popular with canoeists and boaters. There is also a tea pergola and a floreum for meetings, shows and exhibitions. The dam is fed by two smaller dams above it, which are home to many aquatic birds. The park is fenced and gates at all the entrances are staffed by security guards.”
