Places to go, things to do in Johannesburg

By | July 25, 2018

Johannesburg is a bustling city and is central to the continent’s business and travel sectors. With your own hire car, you’re perfectly positioned to start exploring.

Plug in some of the major attractions – such as Constitution Hill, the Apartheid Museum and Johannesburg Art Gallery – into your car’s GPS and tick them off the list. Take a stroll through the city’s urban parks and enjoy surroundings ranging from castles to the organised chaos of traditional marketplaces.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a scenic day trip. Pilanesberg National Park is three hours from the city and home to the famous ‘Big 5’ safari animals among other incredible sights, while the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is just a 45-minute drive away.

Wherever your adventures in Johannesburg and South Africa take you, it’s best to get there in a reliable and affordable rental car from airportrentals.com.

From Johannesburg, you can head to Durban to soak in the sun on the beach. Alternatively, go South to Port Elizabeth and Cape Town and stop in Bloemfontein along the way.
