South Africa is a country that you must visit at least once in your lifetime! We've teamed up with our mates at Flight Centre to help you make the most of your trip.

Here are eight things you must do in Johannesburg that demonstrate exactly why this city is on our travel bucket list.

Party the night away

There’s a party strip in Melville and it’s the perfect place to have a drink or two. One place on that strip is Unplugged on 7th. Another bar to check out is the historic Cosmopolitan Hotel which includes a retail area and gallery.


Bungee Jump

Orlando Towers look like it’s straight from The Simpsons. You can bungee from that bridge between the two towers if you're brave enough. If bungee jumping isn't your thing, you can take it easy by simply going for a climb, abseil or swing.



Take a moment to learn about one of the most notable periods in world history at the Apartheid Museum. As you walk through the museum, you’ll be able to understand more about South Africa’s past, you’ll experience the rise of Apartheid, its effects on South Africa, its people and the country’s future.


Play golf

This is a little different for some but it's worth it! At World of Golf you can practice golf. Every part of your game – putting, chipping, bunkers. It’s like a driving range for every shot.



Bruma Fleamarket is where you can check out genuine African art and food. There’s some awesome woodwork on display that won't be like anything your friends have got at home!



See where you came from

It’s pretty much set in stone that humans originated from Africa. The Origins Centre has a lot going on. It’s the place where you can suss out fossils, bones and maybe even get your DNA tested.


Head 50km northwest

Cradle of Humankind is around 50kms from Johannesburg and is the site where ape-man fossils and bones have been found. It’s pretty cool if you want to walk around a place where some of the first people walked.



If you want to see native African animals in a place close to their natural habitat, you’ve got the Johannesburg Zoo, the Lion and Safari Park and the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre.
