DAY 2

GET TO KNOW JOHANNESBURG

Add a visit to the renowned Apartheid Museum to witness the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.

FAMILY EXPLORATION

Johannesburg offers a diverse range of family activities to suit your particular interest. An outing for the lovers of military history, a visit to the Johannesburg Military Museum is ideal. Located 7-minutes away from the hotel, this museum is an impressive memorial to the past.

For the discoverers and science lovers the Sci-Bono Discovery centre, a short 30-minute chauffeured drive from the hotel is an all in one centre that offers educational fun for kids.

A quaint picnic prepared by our Chefs can be enjoyed on the lush grassy lawns while the kids enjoy the play area before setting off to view the rose or succulent garden along the meandering paths.

Johannesburg is fast becoming a graffiti and street art destination in its own right with many pieces created by local talent, alongside international artists who have visited the city.
