  • The inner city of Johannesburg

    South Africa self tour

    Myself and my girlfriend will be stopping over in Johannesburg for four days. We have already booked a two day stay/tour in Soweto. On the third day, however, we want to explore a little of Johannesburg. We would like to walk and also use the Rea Vaya bus system. We are hoping to spend time at the CBD area, newtown and Constitution Hill. Can you recommend if this is a sensible way to see JoBurg and what sites we should definitely make an effort to see? Thanks.

Have you any suggestions for places not to miss while keeping the budget realistic?
