Overview

Commonly known as Jo’burg or Jozi, this rapidly changing city is the vibrant heart of South Africa. After almost 20 years of decline and decay, Johannesburg is now looking optimistically towards the future. Its centre is smartening up and new loft apartments and office developments are being constructed at a rapid pace. The hipster-friendly neighbourhood of Maboneng is considered one of the most successful urban-renewal projects in the world. However, the wealth divide remains stark, and crime and poverty haven't been eliminated.

Still, Jo’burg is an incredibly friendly, unstuffy city and there’s a lot to see and do here. The city is awash with superb museums, mostly offering deep insight into South Africa's troubled past such as the Apartheid Museum. Delve in and experience the buzz of a city undergoing an incredible rebirth.

Johannesburg Travel Seasons

Because Johannesburg lies in the Southern Hemisphere, summer runs between December and February, while winter is between June to August. Summer in Johannesburg is the peak season - the weather is warm but the city is crowded and room rates among other things are high. Between March and May, the weather is still warm while the crowds have gone and prices come down, making this the best time to visit Johannesburg, South Africa. September to November is another good time to visit Johannesburg. The weather is pleasant, the crowds have not yet arrived, and you can find reasonable room rates. Winter is a good time to visit if you are looking for the lowest room rates.
