Things To Do In And Around Jo'Burg

The Apartheid Museum: The implementation of apartheid and white minority rule, as well as South Africa's peaceful transition to a non-racial democratic society, are major stories of the 20th century. This is what makes the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg a must-stop for tourists visiting South Africa. Visitors to the museum are greeted with a very real reflection of what it was like to live in a racially segregated society.

Soweto, Pimville: Many famous South African leaders have their roots in Soweto - Nelson Mandela, Bishop Desmond Tutu. There are a number of tours to Soweto and they are well worth taking. The many museums, monuments and memorials give a better understanding to the history of Johannesburg and "apartheid" in particular. It is approximately 37 kms away from Sandton.

The Wilds Municipal Nature Reserve: This 16 hectare nature reserve, approximately 12 kms from the townhouse, provides a pristine natural environment, that is right on your doorstep. With running waterfalls and fountains, it provides great walks. At the peak of The Wilds is a sundial that marks a wonderful city skyline view. Entrance is free!
