I love living in Joburg. It is not too hot in summer, not too cold in winter and empties out every school holiday. I hate traffic, but it does give you more time to see the sunsets in winter.
In no particular order, here are some free places to visit and things to do in Joburg:
- Peacemakers Museum, Mandela Square
- Lonehill Koppie
- Rietfontein Nature Reserve, Paulshof
The Peacemakers Museum is a hidden gem in the heart of Sandton. This museum offers free entrance all year round and opens from around 11 daily.
I love Lonehill. It is somewhat special to wander around the park and up the koppie trail or to just have a picnic in the park.
Rietfontein Nature Reserve
This small nature reserve is adjacent to the Free Me Wildlife Rehab in Paulshof. There are some small buck and an awesome 360 degree view of Joburg. Take a picnic with. Entrance is free.
Johannesburg is filled with beautiful graffiti to look at. We won’t recommend going on your own tho!
