Arriving in Johannesburg

Book your flights to Johannesburg with Etihad Airways and set yourself on a journey to the heart of African splendour.

Plan Your Johannesburg Holiday

Your love for African adventure will surely find fulfilment if you travel to Johannesburg. This journey is also your window of opportunity to explore the historical foundation of South Africa. Tours into the Apartheid Museum and the historic downtown Johannesburg buildings are set to pique your interest and leave you wanting to learn more. The Cradle of Mankind and the Gold Reef City excursion are a good chance to do just that.

The best time to travel to Johannesburg is the beginning of February just after the busy and crowded school holidays of December and January. You can immerse yourself in the greatest dance festival of the south, FNB Dance Umbrella also held around this time. Tickets to Johannesburg around this time; like every other time of the year, are easy to come by. Cheap hotels in Johannesburg are bountiful approaching the end of January; it is advisable you book for around this time to avoid the crowds.
