A helpful guide to Johannesburg from a Gauteng function venue!

As a function venue in Gauteng, we know that Johannesburg is a tourist’s paradise, full of places to visit, museums to see and parks to walk in.

Johannesburg’s streets are a delight, as one can buy almost anything from vendors at the traffic signals, by lanes, and pavements. Did you also know that Johannesburg has the biggest man-made urban forest in the world? The city boasts of no less than six million trees – which also make it one of the greenest cities in the world!

Tourist attractions in Johannesburg are a booming business. Some of the best places to visit are the Transport Museum, the Nelson Mandela Bridge, the Nelson Mandela Family Museum, Montecasino, the Montecasino Bird Park, the Melville Koppies Nature Park, Hyde Park Shopping Mall and Sandton City – and that’s not to mention the stunning country scenery and wildlife just outside the city centre!
