12 Hours in Johannesburg

February 26, 2015 No Comments

Our last day in Africa was spent in Johannesburg. We only had one day to see as much as we could, before catching a flight back to Australia late at night.

We decided to jump on the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus, to see as much of Johannesburg as we could in the small amount of time we had there. The route took us through most of Johannesburg and gave us a glimpse into life in the bustling city. We had enough time to jump off and explore at one stop, and we chose the Apartheid Museum.  The Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg has been open since 2001 and is dedicated to presenting the history of the Apartheid and the struggle of South Africa. While we were there they were also displaying a temporary exhibit on the life of Nelson Mandela. The museum was fantastic. The exhibits held so much information, as well as images, videos and displays about what life was like during this time, and how it effected the South African people. It includes many different interactive exhibits too, to show you the way people lived during this time. If you ever find yourself in Johannesburg I would definitely suggest a visit.

Out of respect we didn’t take photos in the Apartheid Museum – all museum images in this post were taken from Google Images. All other images are my own.
