Five Unmissable Day Trips from Johannesburg

Take a city tour of Johannesburg, and you will quickly realize the city's most visited attractions have some connection to the apartheid era.

However, the Gauteng Province has so much more to offer. We have 5 unmissable day trips from Johannesburg to top your list!

Safari at Pilanesberg Game Reserve

Each section of the park offers different vistas with unique rock formations, thick Acacia thickets, vast open grasslands, and pockets of arid land.

Extend your stay in Pilanesberg National Park

Sun City is the best place to stay as its close to the park. It has a multitude of facilities, including a golf course, a casino, and an outdoor water park.

Nirox Sculpture Park

The landscaped gardens and ornamental lakes are the perfect places to relax, take a stroll, and enjoy a picnic.

Hartbeespoort Dam Wall

If you want to get closer to the dam, there is a single-lane road that skirts the water’s edge. The route passes through a long tunnel and takes you across the dam wall.

Balloon Safaris across Magaliesburg

A hot-air balloon safari doesn’t come cheap, but the experience will provide you with unforgettable memories.
