Tourist Information

Summer days are long and warm to hot with clear, cloudless skies - although it is a summer rainfall area and guests are often treated to awesome displays of impressive afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Winters are cool and generally dry, with an occasional coating of sparkling frost on the ground.

With over six million trees, Johannesburg is the largest urban forest in the world and various greenbelts and parks make for delightful natural breakaways in the city.

The O.R. Tambo International Airport serves as the primary airport for domestic flights, as well as international flights to and from South Africa. As Africa's busiest airport, it has the capacity to cater for up to 28 million passengers annually. The Lanseria International Airport situated to the north of Sandton is a privately owned airport that can accommodate aircraft up to the size of the Boeing 757-300 and also sees regular flights from and to many domestic and international destinations.

Sandton is South Africa's premier business and entertainment destination with hundreds of exciting tourist attractions, shopping centres, restaurants, business and conferencing facilities.

Centrally located, Sandton is the ideal base from which to explore the rest of Gauteng and its important natural, cultural and heritage sites such as the Cradle of Humankind, the Magaliesberg region and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. It is also the natural stop-over for visits to other important destinations such as the Kruger National Park.
