Family Travel Ideas in Johannesburg

Edit This

Johannesburg family travel can be packed full of adventure and activities for youngsters as well as adults. With all its history and attractions, there is enough to keep the family busy.

The Bunny Park

This park for the younger children will surely keep them busy for a bit. The children and adults will be captivated by the soft cuddly bunnies and other animals that live here. Families can learn about the swans, geese and rare turtles that roam the park. The Bunny Park even offers pony rides for the young ones.

Gold Reef City

Take the kids to the mining center in Gold Reef City. The place is packed with rides, games and a mining show with colors, special effects and sounds that transport viewers into the miners' world.

The Lion Park

Families can view the magnificent creatures of the Savannah at this adventurous park. They can spot a rare white lion, as well as the 80+ lions and other predators such as cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, wolves, and giraffes. The youngsters will fall in love at Cub World as they feed giraffes from a feeding platform and get up close and personal with these giant herbivores.


Deep sea life is always a topic of fascination for children, and Johannesburg offers two aquariums for the family. A trip to the aquarium will surely never have your kids saying "I'm bored," especially when the entire family can scuba dive with sharks. Of course, security and safety are a priority when swimming with these predatory creatures, so the aquarium makes sure to host these events with all the safety precautions necessary.


Families can indulge in a shopping adventure that will meet the needs of every member of the family. Situated along the waterfront are more than 400 stores, with everything from Victorian-style boutiques to "hippie" markets. Families can tour the various stores and find souvenirs for everyone on their list. The Red Shed Craft Workshop is a must for the family, with its collection of art work and mementos made from sharks' teeth. Take a little piece of Johannesburg home and share it with family and friends.
