Exploring luxurious Sandton
The elite city of Sandton is one of the most affluent areas in South Africa. Situated in Johannesburg, Gauteng, Sandton is popular for its flashy lifestyle, shopping sprees, supercars, and more. The once independent area's name was derived from the combination of two of its suburbs, Sandown and Bryanston.
Sandton is home to the richest gold field on the planet which was discovered more than 120 years ago. Referred to as "Africa's richest square mile", it is known as the most important business and financial district in the country. For both the young professional and families, this luxurious area has much to offer with a wide range of townhouses, apartments, estates, and investments opportunities.
Here are some of the amazing places you can visit Sandton:
The Fourways Farmers' Market
This beautiful outdoor market boasts a whopping 107 vendor stalls that focus on selling locally produced goods. The ambience of the market will make you feel like you are a part of the friendly community of new and experienced marketeers and award-winning chefs. You and the family can sit amidst the lovely garden while watching the children play, or indulge in a picnic on the lawns whilst listening to great local music.
The Johannesburg Zoo
See the top five endangered animals or the elephant with the largest ears at the Johannesburg Zoo which covers 55 hectares of land. Housing over 320 species of animals, the zoo is a fun-filled destination for the whole family. It is a fantastic attraction for edutainment as the zoo offers visitors day and night tours, school holiday programmes, venue hire and regular events for the public.
Nelson Mandela Square
Drawing a vast cosmopolitan society to its sidewalk cafes, divine restaurants, and luxury stores, the European styled piazza of the Nelson Mandela Square will have you embracing the rich culture and heritage that the country has to offer. Take a snap or two by the towering sculpture of Nelson Mandela which holds court over the Square, and adjoins the glamorous Sandton City complex. Whatever it is that you enjoy, the square is a must visit for both the young and old.
