Johannesburg

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 391

South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg is the financial and commercial heart of the country. With boutiques, superb eateries, cafes and entertainment, there’s something for everyone.


South Africa’s pulsing commercial hub picked up a rough, somewhat deserved reputation in the 1980’s as Apartheid was disintegrating. Nowadays – besides being a lot safer – Jo’burg makes a fascinating visit, crucial to understanding the forces shaping modern South Africa.

Spend 3 days exploring the city sights, including a visit to historic Soweto (South West Township). Once the embodiment of apartheid inequality, it is now an essential stop for history-hungry visitors. See the homes of Winnie Mandela, Bishop Tutu, and the former home of Nelson Mandela.

    Opening early 2010, Legacy's latest hotel and all suites development is located adjacent to the prime location of Nelson Mandela Square. This is Legacy's fourth hotel on the cosmopolitan square in the heart of the Sandton business and leisure district. One could speak of the opulence of the rooms, the restaurant and lounge, pioneering fitness centre and health spa but we would suggest you come and see for yourself. Guests can enjoy the endless edge swimming pool, or perhaps, even the convenience of luxurious shopping at the Legacy Corner Mall, Michelangelo Towers Mall and Sandton City a lift trip away. We'd prefer to just call this the "Legacy Lifestyle".

    The Residence is so much more than a boutique experience. Let the immaculate surroundings and opulent spaces put you at ease and delight you as you are invited to be a guest in every sense of the word.
    There is an immediate awareness of the sophisticated splendor of the interior and an all-pervading atmosphere of total tranquility. Take a stroll through the manicured gardens and enjoy a game of tennis or swim a few lengths in the outdoor pools. Guests can work out in the fitness room, and arrangements can be made to play a round of golf at one of many nearby golf courses. A cozy log fire is lit in the fireplace on chilly days, while doors opening onto the long, spacious veranda offer a cool respite from the warm African sun.

Hallmark House

Hallmark House, which was built originally in the 1970s as a diamond-polishing centre, is in the heart of the Maboneng district on the east side of the Johannesburg CBD. Maboneng - which means 'place of light' in Sotho - is owned and being developed by Propertuity. It is an exciting and vibrant new neighbourhood that's quickly becoming a destination for people who enjoy seeing the expression of current creativity and entrepreneurial spirit in all its modern urban forms: from graffiti to art centres and photo walks; from markets to yoga studios and new designer shops; the area is edgy and vital. Newmark's boutique hotel in Hallmark House will reflect this character in its style and ambience and will offer guests the opportunity to stay in the heart of this multi-cultural city hub and explore all the area has to offer.

Duration0 Hours
Day 2

Half Day Soweto Tour

Today you will enjoy a Half Day Soweto Tour. You know the name. It's a legend. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack. Inside Soweto, guests visit the Kliptown Open Air Museum where delegates met in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter, now the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights and the South African Constitution. This journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. The next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; guests will pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum (own account). Finally we take you past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African Story.

Duration4 Hours

Half Day Johannesburg City Tour

Today you will enjoy a Half Day Johannesburg City Tour. Set off for Constitution Hill, home of South Africa's architectural marvel, the Constitutional Court and site of Johannesburg's Old Fort Prison (closed Sundays). Explore the inner city of Johannesburg learning about the gold rush and visit the Top of Africa, the 223m high Carlton Centre, with views as far as the capital city of Pretoria, before exploring the Maboneng Precinct, a wonderful example of urban regeneration on the eastside of Johannesburg. Return to your hotel via the lush, upmarket suburb of Houghton.
