Johannesburg, lovingly called Joburg or Jozi, is the ever-evolving pulsating heart of South Africa’s Rainbow Nation. Once but a humble mining camp, it now proudly claims the title as Africa’s most prosperous and vibrant metropolis. Our boutique hotel & villa in Johannesburg, and the smorgasbord of enriching cultural experiences are but two good reasons to visit  ‘Egoli’, the city of gold.

Why you should visit Johannesburg

From your boutique hotel & villa in Sandton, a full day experiencing the vibrant African city of Johannesburg is a must (but likely not time enough). Whether by car, bicycle or on foot trusted local guides in Maboneng, Soweto and Newtown help you to explore the colourful street art, local food, music, world-class shopping and, a UNESCO World Heritage Site too.

Best time to visit Johannesburg

The 1750 meter (6000 feet) altitude sets Johannesburg’s temperature to ‘moderate’, year-round. Summer (December to February) sees balmy days and dramatic afternoon thunderstorms. Autumn (March to May) ushers in milder temperatures, the dry winter months (June to August) continuing the trend, with cooler nights. Spring ( September through November) belongs to jacaranda trees’ purple spectacle blooming across the city’s northern suburbs.
