    This provided great insight on Apartheid. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to know about history check out this spot. Unfortunately, we only could stay in the museum for a little over an hour as we wanted to tour Soweto as well. I would say it could take about 3 hours to thoroughly go through the museum. I was able to read mostly everything, but I did feel a little rushed (my own doing). I would have spent more time listening to some of the videos and such. The museum can be a little confusing to navigate through (as far as which part is what), but someone easily pointed us in the right direction. All the information was thorough and engaging!! Highly recommend!

    It is a great place with young children. But be aware that there are limited number of rides for kids slightly shorter than 1.3m that are no longer toddlers. Otherwise park is fairly small size, so you do not need to walking distances. As we came during the working days, hardly any queues at all. Some water rides were closed which wasn't ideal, but they were open later in the day. Overall a great day out.

    This is the best Victorian house museum i have seen. better than some of the ones in the UK. I would recommend going and seeing it. Kathrine knows her stuff and is more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
    Overall it was an amazing experience.

    By all means visit Soweto and challenge old stereotypes. Recommend the excellent Mandy Imbizo Tours, run by a local.

    This is a wonderful open space in Johannesburg- more of a park than the traditional definition of a botanical garden. Has a range of entry points - including an entry and area for people with dogs. Has a few dams and a kids play area. Lots of trees, lots of grassy spaces. Perfect for picnics and just chilling. Check out the fascinating bookshop at one of the entrances. A place we go back to often. As do many families, couples and groups of friends. Thank goodness for this breathing space in Joburg.

    This is the BEST park in Johannesburg by far. Beautiful forest with indigenous trees in the middle of the concrete jungle. This is the Lil Eden where I find my center.

    Walk from Tutu's house to Mandela's house and experience this historical street. There's a lot of poverty still in Soweto, and it's sad that for many, not much has changed since democracy has come :(

    This is a unique place in Joburg with great restaurants and a range of boutiques, from clothing, to ceramics, to jewelry, to vinyl records. It's a nice place to spend a few hours for a meal and shopping. I highly recommend!

    Charming, cosmopolitan, down to earth and vibrant. A lot of people complain about homelessness and let's face it we live in South Africa is the most unequal society in the world, and Melville is no exception, what I am really proud of is how the Melville community is so inclusive people from different races, economic situations, sexualities all feel free to express themselves in this melting pot. The community also tries their best to support people who are homeless and that's one of the things that make Melville special.❤❤❤ The night life is definitely for people who are down to earth, looking for a relaxed atmosphere and looking for a goodnight out. The cafe's are also awesome. If shopping is your thing, don't forget to check out the charity shops. And remember to be vigilant no matter where you are in Johannesburg🤷🏾‍♂️.

    Simply a gem nestled in middle of JHB! Some challenging hike options or more leisurely stroll for first timers with studding views. Open all year, everyday and got to see wildlife (zebra, wildebeest to name a few).
