Places Near Johannesburg

Gold Reef City is a mere 6 km south of the city, and has some eclectic attractions, but tourists mainly go for three reasons – the variety of bars, pubs and eating joints there; the amusement-park style games and rides; and the historical reconstructions of Jo’burg’s history.

Pretoria, about 56 km from Jo’burg, is a less exciting but also safer getaway from the thrills and spills of the latter. It has some impressive architecture, including the Union Buildings and the Voortrekker Monument, apart from a good museum, the Kruger House.

Victoria Falls, also known as Smoke that thunders, is located at a distance of 1317 km from Johannesburg and can be reached in less than two hours by taking a flight. Victoria Falls is the largest curtain of falling water in the world and is truly a breathtaking sight!

Sun City, a premiere holiday resort, is conveniently located at a distance of 187 km from Johannesburg and can be easily reached by hiring a car. Sun City is a perfect place to relax and unwind!
