Top Rated Attractions in Johannesburg

Search Radius (Miles)
Montecasino

With the frequently vaunted claim of making more millionaires than anyone else, this casino is well patronized by locals and tourists alike. A full house of slot machines, Blackjack, Roulette, Poker and Crap tables, with lots more besides, will cater for most tastes. The food on offer is always good, and staff members are close at hand to assist customers. Open, for all intents and purposes, all day every day, the casino is conveniently located next to a retail shopping complex, a gym facility as well as cinemas and coffee shops.

The National Children's Theater

An early Twentieth Century house takes your children back in time, to watch (mostly) kids' Classic plays. You can also see every room decorated with old sets, costumes and pictures both photographic and impressionistic. The National Children's Theater is run by an award-winning executive director. About 120 patrons can occupy the theater on floor-mats or chairs, the latter if you're over a certain age. Casts are sent out, too, if a theater loving school can't afford its own journey. This is sheer entertainment, as well as educational theater. There are also interactive theater workshops if your kid hankers after being either a professional walk-on or a Star. Call ahead for hours.

Nelson Mandela Square

Formerly known as Sandton Square, this hub of city life in Johannesburg was renamed Nelson Mandela Square in 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the birth of South Africa's democracy. Also the home of the Nelson Mandela statue, which was unveiled when the square was renamed, the square serves not only as a tribute to the famed president's historic efforts to bring peace to the nation but also a focal point where visitors and locals alike can contemplate the country's turbulent past. An Italian-style piazza full of shops, restaurants, and galleries, located near world-class hotels and the city's financial district, this is a must-see for any visitor to Johannesburg.

Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden

This is one of the most popular gardens in the province, situated west of Johannesburg, with a magnificent waterfall and resident Black Eagles. The gardens are well known among botanists, birdwatchers, the general public who come to enjoy the tea garden and the Sunday Picnic Concerts. A ring road runs through the lush area and is an easy walk of about an hour. A telescope is set up to grant a glimpse of the eagles. The nursery sells a variety of indigenous plants, and children enjoy the vast lawn areas where people can enjoy a picnic or simply relax.

Apartheid Museum

The Apartheid Museum best reflects the history of South Africa's apartheid days. Under the able guidance of Nelson Mandela, the country strongly fought racial discrimination, and this museum stands as a reminder of those stories and experiences. Photographs, film footage and artifacts displayed in the 22 exhibition areas will take one through the journey of the nation's struggle. If you're in Johannesburg, do not miss an opportunity to gain insight into this integral part of South Africa's history.

Arts On Main

Art On Main is an art gallery that displays a number of very interesting art pieces. The creative space does more than display artwork. Artists congregate to discuss and share ideas, opinions, and thoughts, while an outdoor cinema screens film and a rooftop bar let artists, as well as customers, relax over a drink. They also have a reading room, art supplies, and bookstore and even host music concerts. Do call ahead for more details about the artists and more.
