Out & About
ALONG WITH ITS business prowess in Africa, Gauteng offers an endless array of activities to keep you occupied while working away from home. The province has everything you could possibly need for your business travels when it comes to providing a peaceful base, including the Maslow Hotel, located in Sandton, Johannesburg and widely known as the premier accommodation for business travellers - partly due to its prime location in Sandton’s financial district. Another perk of staying in a hotel located in this area is the proximity to the station, city mall and Nelson Mandela Square, providing the perfect base for exploration in your free time.
In the evenings similar to many cities that open the doors to business travellers, there is a plethora of food & drink choices to play with. If you are up for trying something a little different with your evening then Johannesburg has an array of distilleries to wind down in after a long day of work.
Of course, Gauteng is steeped in history around every corner and you won’t have to travel far to discover a monument or museum to amaze you on a free afternoon. Alongside the museums, Johannesburg offers up some incredible art to enjoy, including Wits Art Museum; home to an incredible collection of African art, including contemporary as well as historical art from South Africa.
You will also find a plentiful supply of nature to wind away a few hours away from the office, including Pretoria National Botanical Garden, one of South Africa’s nine botanical gardens and a truly special place to escape the bustle of the city.
