Top Things to Do in Johannesburg

Just because the Gauteng is home to two of the biggest cities in South Africa, does not mean it is a concrete jungle. In fact, the area is home to some of the most scenic natural areas and if you’re looking for ways to connect with nature without driving too far, you’re in luck! The Bucket List Genie compiled a list of her top things to do in Gauteng when she travels for business.

Sky Dining

With so many options to choose from, you can always find an excuse to enjoy sky dining. Sky dining is a hosted table suspended at a height of up to 60 metres by crane and executed by a team of professionals, and you can choose from breakfast in the sky, champagne breakfast in the sky, lunch in the sky, snacks in the sky, or dinner in the sky. You could even opt for a Limo and dinner in the sky, or add an overnight experience if you want to use this opportunity to pop the question.

Harties Cruises

Just because you’re far from the ocean it does not mean you can’t enjoy a lovely, relaxing cruise. Head to Hartbeespoort Dam for one of our exclusive Harties cruises against the magnificent backdrop of the Magaliesberg mountains. Some of the options include an extreme airboat experience, a brunch on the dam, a gourmet snack cruise, a ride on the Harties aerial cableway and Sunday lunch cruise, an exclusive boat cruise and spa experience, or an overnight stay with sunset snack cruise for couples.

Hot Air Balloon Flights

Take in the most amazing, peaceful sights of Gauteng from a bird’s eye view high up in the sky. A hot air balloon flight has always been one of the most popular bucket list experiences, so head to Glenburn Lodge or the Cradle of Humankind to make your dream a reality.

Vintage Flights

Enjoy a scenic flight in a de Havilland D.H. 82 Tiger Moth or secure your seatbelt for a tummy-turning T6 Harvard complete with aerobatics. Want even more adventure? Make your dream of learning to fly a reality by signing up for a 20-minute introductory flight in the 1942 Vintage Army Cub, facilitated by an International Civil Aviation Organisation and SACAA approved flying academy.

Who would’ve thought there’s so much going on right in Gauteng? Now you never have to be bored again with all these fun things to do in Gauteng.
