Family Fun For All
If you are planning on experiencing the Jozi scene with your family and loved ones, then we’ve got some things for you. The first one is a visit to Gold Reef City Theme Park. This place is the perfect initiation into Jozi, with rides that are exhilarating and out of this world. Enjoy adrenaline rushes from the likes of Anaconda, Miner’s Revenge, and more when you visit Gold Reef City.
If you would like to get in touch with some animal nature or teach the little ones about some of our four-legged friends, the Johannesburg Zoo is the place for you. You can enjoy walks around the zoo while getting to know some interesting history and facts about some of the animals in South Africa and beyond. So, get the whole family, we’re going to the zoo.
There are also markets which are child and pet-friendly. Take Kammers Market, which is child-friendly, and Bedfordview Market, which is dog-friendly, for example; these two offer you beautifully set up markets in Johannesburg and access to seeing some local designs and tasting local treats. So, take a bite out of the market pie with your family this season.
Pride Is Here, You Comin’?
Whether you’re a member or an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community, you know the importance and significance of Pride. And Johannesburg does not shy away from celebrating this momentous occasion. Set on celebrating the LGBTQIA+ heroes who have fought for the rights and visibility of queer people; Pride is an annual event in and around the world hosted in many different cities. Some celebrate Pride in June in honour of an American uprising that took place in the 1960s; others also celebrate it in October to honour the first South African Pride march that took place after the liberation of the country, and others choose February due to Black History Month, etc. Johannesburg will be celebrating in October, so you should look out for that. There are also a lot of queer artists that host shows in places such as Sognage in Strydompark. If you are feeling like celebrating the beautiful rainbows of the community, we hope these shows will give you the experience you’re looking for.
Foodies, Let’s Eat
Johannesburg’s dining experience is getting an upgrade. Pre-pandemic Joburg was home to some amazing chefs who created delicious meals in and around the city’s restaurants. But in an effort to create value and give consumers new experiences, cooking classes are becoming popular. Take advantage of intimate cooking classes in and around Jozi from the likes of The Cooking Kitchen, Urban Cookery, and Taste-Buds Cook Club, which offer classes to create some delicious meals. You can also attend festivals such as DSTV Delicious to get food, fashion, and music all in one place.
The Johannesburg club scene is one of the most loved and respected club scenes in the country. Boasting celebrities at almost every spot, with live performances from artists and DJs, you are never short of fun night-out options in Jozi. Try Braamfontein as a start or The Royale in Rosebank. Here, creatives gather to enjoy some sundowners while connecting over insightful conversations and having fun in a safe space.
