Johannesburg City

Johannesburg

Johannesburg City

Venture into the heart of Johannesburg, or ‘Jozi’ as the locals call it, on a tour that centres in the vibrant Newtown Cultural District. Start with a historical perspective of the area, and immerse yourself in events chronicled in Museum Africa.

Park off briefly for a cold beer at the must-visit the SAB World of Beer, where you can expect to find 3D movies, floating holograms and the option of a 90-minute tour that tells the tale of the popular South African alcoholic beverage.

Then, continue to gain perspective into the city, and visit the residential neighbourhood ‘grey area’ of Hillbrow. Here you’ll discover how different ethnicities lived happily together – in spite of the apartheid struggle. Then, embrace a face of Africa that has largely disappeared with a visit to the Museum of Man and Science where you’ll marvel at the ‘muti’ shop or medicine shop that includes traditional dried herbs that can cure almost any ailment.

Experience the ‘urban togetherness’ of Jozi residents on the east side of town, and visit the lively neighbourhood of Maboneng. Finally, relax from a day of cultural overload and socialise in one of the many shebeens that used to serve as meeting places for political dissidents.

Highlights

• Learn the history of beer and brewing at SAB World of Beer
• Live like a Jozi local and visit a shebeen for a drink
• Capture the essence of South African history at the Apartheid Museum
• Visit the highest court in the land

Museum Africa
Nestled in the heart of Johannesburg’s Newtown Cultural District, Museum Africa is an important ethnological museum that contains artefacts and archaeological items, as well as paintings, photographs and musical instruments from recent history. The museum is an animated memorial to key phases of Johannesburg’s past. In the District you will also come across the Worker’s Museum, SAB World of Beer, the Market Theatre and Bassline live music venue.

The Museum of Man and Science
The Museum of Man and Science is actually a medicine or ‘muti’ shop, dedicated to traditional healing. The shop’s biggest local selling item is its rich concentration of traditional dried herbs. There is a constant flow of customers who are advised by the inyanga (traditional healers) on what to purchase to cure their physical and spiritual ailments.

Hillbrow
Hillbrow, home to the iconic circular Ponte Tower, is an inner-city residential neighbourhood known for its high levels of population density, unemployment, poverty and crime. Trendy in the 1970s, it was an apartheid¬‐designated ‘whites only’ area but soon became a ‘grey area’, where people of different ethnicities lived happily together.

Maboneng
The inner city of Johannesburg is constantly evolving and regenerating. The Maboneng precinct, on the east side of the city, has become a lively neighbourhood and hub of culture, business and lifestyle. The area reflects the new breed of Jozi residents promoting urban togetherness. It offers a mix of residential, office, industrial and retail stores with a trendy and exciting selection of restaurants and entertainment venues.

Shebeens
A place to savour a drink and meet up with like-minded people. Shebeens played an essential role in South Africa’s pre¬‐democratic social and political history. During apartheid, they would often serve as meeting places for political dissidents, but they have since crossed over from makeshift taverns to mainstream venues for relaxing and socialising.

The Apartheid Museum
The Apartheid Museum chronicles the history of South Africa’s harsh apartheid era. Beginning with the racial segregation introduced in 1984, the museum takes you through the years of race classification, the 150 acts of apartheid, detentions and oppression of the nationalist regime. It examines the rise of black consciousness, the armed struggle and the release of Nelson Mandela after 27-years of imprisonment, which led to negotiations for peace and ultimately his inauguration in 1994.

Constitution Hill
Constitution Hill is home to the Constitutional Court of South Africa – the highest court in the land. This precinct in Braamfontein was once a prison that contained famous prisoners including Mahatma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, Jow Slovo, Bram Fischer, Albert Luthuli and Robert Sobukwe. The prison had different sections that were collectively called the Fort, and it was a place that was notorious for its harsh treatment of prisoners. It is now a platform for justice, heritage and education.

SAB World of Beer
Situated in the centre of the Newtown Cultural Precinct, the SAB World of Beer is a popular visitor attraction dedicated to the golden brew that SAB has been creating since 1895. Here you can learn about the fascinating history of beer with the help of 3D movies, floating holograms and a large screen with surround sound. You can also opt for the 90-minute tour of the brewery or take yourself on a walk through the sample brewery before stopping in at the Tap Room to enjoy a crisp sample of their brew.
