Information about flights to Johannesburg

Cheap flights Johannesburg

South Africa’s buzzing capital city is a very different place today from the one of the past. With a long, turbulent history, Johannesburg has always been at the centre of South African politics. And although this history hasn’t been conveniently tidied away, there are so many vibrant hotspots to discover in this very modern, optimistic destination. Mass regeneration has created some of the most interesting inner city spots in the world today, with areas like Maboneng being labelled as an example of world-leading urban renewal. Flights to Johannesburg head into O.R. Tambo International Airport, which is a short drive to the heart of the city itself to start your trip.

Sightseeing

One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the upbeat spirit of Johannesburg is to explore its neighbourhoods. The inner city has been completely revamped into a modern, cosmopolitan centre with live music venues and galleries.And arty districts like Newtown and Braamfontein are teeming with eateries and cultural venues. During your travels, check out intriguing spots like the Apartheid Museum and CIRCA on Jellico, a gallery housing an impressive collection of modern art. For a relaxing afternoon, pop to the beautiful Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, or Lion Park to get up close and personal with lion cubs. You can even visit Lesedi Cultural Village for something a little different, to experience traditional dances and sample authentically African dishes.

Shopping

From its glossy, contemporary malls, to its traditional streets markets, shopping in Johannesburg is an experience not to be missed. Places worth checking out include Oriental Plaza, a great spot for bargain hunters, or the always popular Sandton City Mall. To really get a feel for Johannesburg shopping at its best though, try one of the many local flea markets, or the charming African Arts and Craft Market which is open daily.

Food and drink

When you’re strolling the streets of Johannesburg, you’ll notice the huge number of al fresco cafés and eateries. The dining scene is in fact extremely eclectic, and generally laid-back. It’s worth remembering that the city is enormous, so make sure to get your bearings before looking for that specific place to eat, or visit in general. As far as districts go, most restaurants tend to cluster around a few key streets. Greenside is the perfect spot for cafés and lively music bars. Norwood has relaxed dining spots serving a wide range of cuisines and Melville is popular with students. For that evening drink, stick to Melville for youthful buzzing pubs and bars, or pop to Rivonia and Sandton for the more upmarket nightlife spots.
