Nirox Sculpture Park (Krugersdorp)
With green lawns that practically go on forever, this outdoor park is home to dozens of striking outdoor art installations.
Come with your picnic baskets and cameras fully charged because this is one that you will not regret.
I can literally lay here all day! Bare feet on the grass, sunshine, blue skies, shade trees, nature. This beautiful green haven at Nirox sculpture park is just 20mins from Johannesburg. ????????????☀️❤️ pic.twitter.com/x3hBMkjzeu

Neighbourgoods Market (Braamfontein)
A gem, hidden in the heart of Johannesburg, the market is open every Saturday.
Capture the power of community, good music, and exceptional food.

The Wilds Nature Reserve (Houghton)
The nature reserve offers you’re a short but peaceful break-away from the city.
The Wilds Municipal Nature Reserve,
Houghton Drive, Houghton Estate, Joburg.
One of the most peaceful and beautiful places in the city of gold.
Perfect for quiet moments of prayer, reflection, planning or reading; and a little hike.
I am loving it. pic.twitter.com/fqPz9s0okL

Orlando Towers (Soweto)
Interested in a 100m bungee jump or perhaps the world’s highest free fall?
Both of these and more are available in one of the city’s oldest communities.
These two cooling towers, the remains of a decommissioned coal-fired power station, have become a famous destination for adrenaline-driven locals and tourists alike.
Originally the site of a coal fired power station, the Orlando Towers have become one of the most distinctive landmarks in the neighbourhood of Soweto and the site of the world’s first bungee jump between two cooling towers #WeDoTourism #ShotLeft #Soweto pic.twitter.com/o53rLUwfD2
