Johannesburg holidays have a great deal to offer everyone. When in Johannesburg expect to see a vibrant, lively and dynamic city. There's a great mixture of Edwardian and Victorian architecture with newer buildings of concrete and glass thrown in.
There are direct Johannesburg flights from the UK to Johannesburg International Airport, which is situated approximately 14 miles to the east of central Johannesburg. If you want to experience Johannesburg and surrounding areas freely it's probably best that you obtain car hire from Johannesburg Airport, as public transport can involve a lengthy wait. The best alternative to driving yourself around is to take advantage of the local taxi services.
The Sandton and Rosebank areas give Johannesburg holidays an affluent feel as you rub shoulders with some of the most seriously rich people in South Africa. However, whatever your budget you will find a whole range of accommodation, from places perfect for cheap holidays to Johannesburg to the more luxurious upmarket hotels if you are feeling extravagant.
You could visit the local zoo where the open plan arrangement means that animals are surrounded by moats, rather than the typical cages or bars that you would see in the UK. Your holidays in Johannesburg would not be complete without a visit to the township of Soweto where you can have a guided tour of the home that Nelson Mandela grew up in. There are museums and places of interest to explore such as the World Heritage Site of the Cradle of Humankind.
