What began as a modest gold-mining town in the late 19th century grew to become South Africa’s thriving economic capital: Johannesburg (or Jo’burg for short). At first glance the city can seem unforgiving and its residents raucous, which is why most travellers who book flights to Johannesburg use it as a base on their way to game reserves and other cities and towns in South Africa. But those who stay a little longer discover a city rich in culture and history.

The best way to get to know the city is by exploring its city centre; the heart and soul of Jo’burg. The area has been revamped in recent years but still has some fine examples of colonial architecture. For an insight into the segregated black neighbourhoods built during the apartheid years take a tour of the township Soweto where Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu both lived.

Post-apartheid Jo’burg has acquired a reputation for being a dangerous city filled with crime and poverty and while this sentiment often resonates in the minds of travellers coming off Johannesburg flights, it shouldn’t deter anyone from visiting this fascinating city.

Getting around Johannesburg

After your flight to Johannesburg lands, hop aboard one of the airport shuttles, which are available for most hotel destinations. The rest of the city is accessible by taxi, by bus, or on foot. The safest way to travel is by calling a cab or hiring your own car. 

Johannesburg has bus routes to all corners of the city, and the main station is Park Station. Ticket prices vary by zones. Crime is often a problem on Johannesburg’s public transport, especially on the Jo’burg-Pretoria line, so take care to travel in numbers and keep your belongings close. If you’re taking a taxi, it’s safest to hail a cab or call ahead from your hotel, as taxi lines are often hotspots for petty crime.
