7 Things you probably didn’t know you could do in Johannesburg
Many of us go to Johannesburg to either work or have a good time. We can agree though that those things tend to get a bit mundane so there comes a time when we’d like to experience something different. Let’s show you the unusual side of Johannesburg with these strange things you probably didn’t know you could do.
Go on a Past Experiences Walking Tour
Past Experiences runs various tours from shopping to graffiti to historical tours, so you’ll never get bored. Experience a different side of Johannesburg and learn a bit more of this beautiful city of gold’s past.
Enjoy a sundowner in The Living Room
Watch the sunset on the rooftop venue, The Living Room, situated in Maboneng. This restaurant provides you with the best view of our beloved skyline so grab a girlfriend and enjoy tapas and cocktails while surrounded by plants.
Escape the city to Melville Koppies
Hands up, who has ever been to the Melville Koppies? This gorgeous 50 year old nature reserve is home to 180 bird species and a variety of small mammals making it a glorious place to escape the noise of the city without actually having to leave the city. It makes sense to us.
Hennops Hiking Trail
Here’s another attraction for those who love nature. The Hennops Hiking Trail offers two main hikes and a shorter one for kids. Bet you’re thinking what could possibly be attractive about a hike in the city? You won’t find buildings and concrete on this trail but rather rolling grasslands, rocky plateaus, riverside gorges and a view that will capture every photographer’s lens.
Montecasino Bird Garden
So maybe you’d rather be gambling or enjoying a theatre performance. Don’t throw the bird garden completely out the door. It’s an amazing sanctuary for countless exotic birds. This garden also features an impressive cycad garden, frogs and lemurs! Who wouldn’t want to take the kids here?
Enjoy a gourmet picnic from The Secret Kitchen
The Secret Kitchen, situated in Johannesburg, is renown for their stunning Gourmet picnic baskets. Indulge in a scrumptious selection of picnic snacks at the destination of your choice. The Johannesburg Botanical Gardens might be a good destination.
Travel back in time at the Bioscope
The Bioscope is an unused 1970s industrial building on Main Street in downtown Johannesburg and is Joburg’s only Independent Cinema. Drink wine and eat popcorn that’s unlike any you’ve tasted before and catch up with South Africa’s latest artistic film releases.
