When in Johannesburg, stay in Northcliff— a high-class suburb with upscale retail shops, trendy restaurants, and cafes. Located in Northcliff Ridge, the second-highest point of the city, it has a commanding view of the Central Business District and lush northern suburbs. Some activities people can do around the area include going on a 60-kilometer (37-mile) bike ride on Braamfontein Spruit, a greenbelt route running alongside Jukskei River, or sampling the flavorful beers of South Africa at Craft Beer Library. With over 250 bird species, Florence Bloom Bird Sanctuary is the perfect spot to take photos of exquisite feathered friends such as the Madagascar cuckoo and Ayres hawk-eagle in. Enjoy bowling at Beaconsfield Bowling Club or shop and dine at Cresta Shopping Centre. To try all these, choose a vacation rental that feels just like home.
