Johannesburg
Johannesburg
Joburg, as it's known, is both the wealthiest city in Africa and one with stark poverty and crime. To travel here is to step into a culture inextricably linked with its apartheid past. But the Joburg of today is a city overflowing with art, fashion, and sporting events. There are things to do for every type of traveler. Head to the township of Soweto and book one of the dozens of cultural heritage tours - - by bicycle , van or on foot - - to learn about the history of apartheid, while the Apartheid Museum offers a detailed view of South Africa's troubled past. Out in the swish suburbs, visitors will be greeted with attractions such as zoos, hot air balloon rides, and shopping. There are several nature preserves within Joburg's city limits (and many larger ones nearby ) , so enjoy a day safari and see rhinos, lions, or antelope. Because of its relatively low costs compared to Europe, Joburg is popular with backpackers. Hotels can be a good value and a plethora of cheap hostels offered something for every price range.

It’s a theme park, casino, live music venue, and historical tour. Just 8 km outside Johannesburg you can tour one of the underground mines that helped make this the “City of Gold”, hit the blackjack table, and ride a rollercoaster all in one place and in one day.

Square
Statue/Sculpture
Mandela Square is a popular place in South Africa. The entire square is full of feeling of fashion, with casual coffee bars and upscale restaurants. Due to its central location in Sandton, it is easily accessible from the financial district, Sandton Convention Centre, luxury hotels and some of the specialty shops in Sandton. The design idea of the entire square is to bring the Italian style of life to the African continent.

The Apartheid Museum is located in the southwest corner of Johannesburg, South Africa. The rich historical materials and objects reveal the darkness of South Africa's apartheid period. It also shows how the country that launched the notorious apartheid system developed from a "black and white" to a "rainbow" since the end of the apartheid policy in South Africa for 12 years.

Zoo
The Johannesburg Zoo has thousands of mammals, birds and reptiles. Lions, elephants, giraffes, and large apes are only divided by trenches and are completely free of iron railings, making them popular with tourists. In addition, the newly designed polar bear habitat, the large bird cage for people to walk around, is also popular with tourists. The Midlands, located in the Johannesburg area, has a Transvaal Snake Park, which displays a wide variety of African snakes. The setting is very attractive and has displays that show visitors how to extract poisonous venom.
