need itinerary help!! How much time in Jo'burg?

After spending 3 days in capetown and 2 in Kruger, we'll be stopping off in J'burg for an afternoon and evening befor we head to Botswana for more game viewing. As our itinerary stands now, we will only have an afternoon in J'Burg. I assumed we would just spend the time in Rosebank where our hotel is and enjoy the shopping.

My question is whether we should come in earlier in the day (we could get in around 11am) to get a tour of Soweto before we go to our hotel? Also, would it be worth spending the next day in J'burg and missing a day of game viewing? Not sure how much time we should spend in J'Burg if our time is limited? HELP!!

Hello eilee

If you get a chance to go to Soweto, then I would make the effort.

Soweto, Hector Peterson Memorial and Appartheid Museum are usually in the Soweto trip and are 3 of the top tourist attractions in Johannesburg.

To take a day off you wildlife trip to spend a day in Johannesburg depends on the reason for comming to africa. Shops/restaurants that you can find anywhere or wildlife that you can only find in africa.

I know what my answer would be.

Fly in to J'burg earlier and do soweto and apartheid museum. Don't take a day off game viewing. There is nothing else to see in J'burg
