Start your day with a pickup from your Sandton or Rosebank hotel, then relax on the journey into Johannesburg's city center. Gaze out at the historical buildings of downtown Johannesburg that dominate this bustling city. Your guide will point out the must-see Hillbrow Tower that juts out over the city's skyscrapers, as well as the iconic Post Office Tower.
Stop outside Africaâ€™s tallest skyscraper, the Carlton Centre, and walk up to the 50th floor observation deck with your guide to see sweeping panoramas of the entire city. After walking around the viewing platform at your leisure, return to your coach to continue seeing the sights.
Continue on to Constitution Hill next, passing by the Supreme Court and the famous Nelson Mandela Bridge in Newtown, said to symbolize Mandelaâ€™s role in bridging the apartheid divide. As you drive around Constitution Hill, listen to your guide explain some of the fascinating history that this National Heritage site has witnessed throughout the years. Learn about South Africaâ€™s turbulent past and its slow yet steady transition to democracy.
Pass the new constitutional court and the historic site of Johannesburgâ€™s Old Fort Prison Complex, where Nelson Mandela was famously the only black prisoner to be held here. Your tour winds back through the affluent neighborhood of Houghton, passing lavish homes and leafy streets.
If time permits, enjoy a final stop at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens at Emmerentia Dam. Spend time here at leisure, wandering amid the African herb garden and strolling along the tranquil lawns.
