This vibrant city has history, culture, food, and music scenes that are worth exploring. Here is a 2-day Johannesburg trip plan that will help cover the basics from a tourist point of view and also enjoy a day trip to a national park to see the African Big Five.

How to spend 2 days in Johannesburg?

Day One

On your day 1 of the 48 hours in Johannesburg, start with touring the city. Reserve the first half of your day to tour the city, while in the afternoon you can visit Soweto. From the comfort of your car, get a chance to see two of the top attractions in Johannesburg like the Hillbrow Tower and Nelson Mandela Bridge. To get a bird's eye view of the city, walk up to the observation deck at the Carlton Center to soak in the unforgettable views of the city. Next, visit the Constitution Hill to learn about the country's democracy. Here see places like Old Fort Prison Complex and the new constitutional court building. Next, drive past the neighbourhood of Houghton before heading to the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens.

In the afternoon, take a trip to Soweto. While on your way, pass the National Football Stadium. Before continuing your journey to the township, walk past the Diepkloof Area to see a local market. In Orlando West, you can drive past the former homes of Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In Soweto, visit places like the Mandela House, Apartheid Museum, Soweto Campus of the Johannesburg University, and Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

In the evening, return back to Johannesburg.

Day Two

On the day 2, enjoy a day-trip to Pilanesberg National Park. Start early in the morning, as it would take you approximately 2.5 hrs to reach the park. A three-hour open jeep safari will treat you to amazing landscapes. See the native wildlife of South Africa in their natural habitat. If you are lucky enough, you can see the Big Five as well.
