Johannesburg – Creative Delights in the Revitalized City
Land in Johannesburg and your driver guide greets you at the airport for the short journey across the city to Sandton. Check into a five-star boutique hotel and enjoy lunch with your private driver, who will go through the itinerary in detail. As this is a private overland journey, there's some flexibility, particularly over the timings on each day. Your exploration of Africa then starts in inner-city Johannesburg, where precincts have used art to stimulate their transformation into some of the continent's most talked-about areas. Quirky pop-up shops fill revitalized industrial buildings, galleries, and food markets stand side by side, while the enthusiasm of the Rainbow Nation touches all who visit. These precincts are a great way to view South Africa's present and celebrate the journey into a multicultural future.
