Sitting on one of the richest gold-bearing reefs, Johannesburg or ‘eGoli’ has grown into a 2500 square kilometres mammoth city and the financial capital of South Africa. Affectionately called ‘Jo’berg’ or ‘Jozi’ by South Africans, this dynamic city is an interesting blend of old structures and glass-sheathed buildings.
This tour is ideal for those wanting a quick orientation to the city. Enjoy panoramic views of the city from the ‘Top of Africa’, the observation deck of Carlton Centre. The 295 metre long Nelson Mandela Bridge is the longest bridge in South Africa. Built within the ramparts of the Old Fort (a notorious prison that dates back to 1892), Constitution Hill is a blend of the old and new.
