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.

South African National Museum of Military History

The South African National Museum of Military History comprises one of the most comprehensive collections related to South Africa's role in warfare. Aircraft, armored carriers, artillery, small arms, uniforms and war art are on display, documenting the country's military involvement throughout the world. The museum's shop sells refreshments and an impressive range of books. Free video shows for visitors are offered on weekends and public holidays, while the action playground is sure to keep children entertained. A reference library, conference and function facilities are also available.

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.


Experience the forest from a whole new angle with Acrobranch, one of a number of outdoor adventure parks, which offers a number of exciting activities like canopy walks, bungee jumping and zip lines. Located in the James and Ethel Gray Park, this particular facility has one of Africa's longest zip lines which makes its way through the forested canopy of the park. Zip down the rope from tree to tree across their various zip lines or show off your climbing skills on their various obstacle courses which include everything from monkey bars to Tarzan swings. Separate obstacle courses are also available for kids and teenagers.

Constitution Hill

This area of Johannesburg is filled with mixed themes and is rife with history. A symbol of South Africa's journey to freedom, the Constitutional Court sits where the Old Fort Prison Complex used to house both political and common criminals. Figures such as Robert Sobukwe, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were once imprisoned in these walls until its closure in 1983. This site has been transformed into a monument of justice. Guided and interactive tours are scheduled regularly.

Gold Reef City

Built around the No. 14 shaft of Crown Mines, this city is an authentic reproduction of Johannesburg at the beginning of the 1900s. There are fully furnished miner's houses with original furniture and fittings, including pressed ceilings. The museum exhibits include antique clothing and children's toys, which take the visitor back 100 years to the city that was. A train encircles the park and many shops offer interesting curios. You can also visit the original gold mine in a lift that goes down to 220 meters below the surface. An on site casino is open 24 hours daily.
