Go on holiday to Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, and not only will you be wowed by its vibrant urban culture, but you could go on a safari adventure of a lifetime in its surrounding natural landscapes and National Parks. Brightsun Travel offers cheap holidays to Johannesburg so that you can experience the very best that South Africa has to offer this holiday. Starting in the heart of Johannesburg, you could explore a fast-changing art scene, fantastic markets, and a food and drink culture that could keep you entertained for days. Art lovers could head to the impressive ‘Arts on Main’, and discover an arts centre with working studios, retail areas and cafes in a former warehouse. For food, you can't beat the trendy ‘Neighbourhoods Market’ where you can get some of the best food and drink in the city, before roaming boutiques and stalls that showcase some of the best local designers in the country. Another must-see in the city is the Apartheid Museum, with installations that showcase personal and inspiring stories of residents who lived through the apartheid era in South Africa.
As well as a fantastic city break destination, Johannesburg is a gateway to some of the most impressive natural and historical landscapes in South Africa, if not the world. Just a day trip from the city, you could explore why the region has been named the ‘Cradle of Humanity’ at the Sterkfontein Caves, and explore ancient fossils dating back over 4 million years. Johannesburg is also famously surrounded by National Parks, where you can go on a world-class safari adventure. Under 5 hour drive from the city are Pilanesberg National Park, Madikwe Game Reserve and Mapungubwe National Park, where you can explore lush forests and spot a range of wildlife. The showstopper however is Kruger National Park, a dramatic side trip from Johannesburg, where you will be surrounded by a diversity and volume of animals that is unparalleled in the rest of Africa. Here you can spot elephants, big cats and giraffes within easy guided tours. Contact Brightsun Travel about our exclusive holidays to Johannesburg and go on an African holiday to remember.
