Johannesburg
City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality
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.

Zoo
_We***61A stunning day out. Animals are well looked after and prices are reasonable. There are much nicer safaris in Johannesburg but much more expensive. You can spend 5 minutes with the white lion cubs which will try to steal and chew your flip flops. A must go if you don't want to spend too much money on a safari

Zoo
xia***25This is the first time I have seen such a huge wild animal population, and even close contact, it is not comparable to the zoo, because you can’t tell what you see, the truck behavior is a bit of animal tracking, such as a two-hour visit but every The route of each group is different. They will lead us to the places where most animals are infested according to the intelligence. Giraffes, zebras, elephants and wildebeest can be seen basically, and lions and leopards depend on luck.
