Today’s post will focus on Johannesburg, South Africa! If you’re new to the blog (holla!), my “flashback” posts are primarily pictures without a lot of words. These are basically trips I’ve done in the past before the seed of doing a blog ever planted in my mind. Driving from Kruger National Park (Read more here), we stopped by an animal creche before getting into the city.
I fell in love in Johannesburg faster than you can say “Biltong!”; I met up with friends who had been living in the city for a month or so which really elevated the experience as I felt like a ‘local’. Some “must-dos” include the Apartheid Museum which is a multimedia museum that chronicles the events of the oppressive apartheid years. It is a very sobering experience that provides a chilling insight to the implementation of the apartheid system. There is a section dedicated to the late Nelson Mandela which is a “must” if you don’t have time to go to the Mandela House in Soweto.
Neighbourgoods Market was one of my FAVOURITE experiences in South Africa as a whole (yes! it’s that great). It’s only open Saturdays so try to get there early. It is an open air market filled with tons of food, local artisans and the rooftop has a bar and live music or a DJ at all times. Into guns? Stop by Gutheries.. first time I shot a gun… I wasn’t half bad!
If you’re ever in Johannesburg and looking for things to do definitely check out Vibescout for up to date events in the area!
