I am living in J'Burg for the next 3 months and I am based in an apartment block within a mall complex. It's driving me mad not being able to just go outside and walk about and most of the activities in the guidebooks are either museums, guided tours of soweto or suggest leaving town for a safari.
There must be something to do in J'Burg that is not inside (I want to enjoy the sunshine) and not a tourist attraction! Please help. I would love to find a safe park to enjoy or a rooftop garden or even just find a row of cafes and shops that you can sit out the front of watching the world go by. Please no more malls! I went to Arts of Main and that was fab - any other suggestions similar?
