This was my second trip to the top of Africa . It is very decently priced and the view is awesome but it is a bit dated and could use some refreshing. Good fun for kids.

Visited 'Top of Africa' as part of a Jo'burg city tour. The building is old and run down and I didnt feel overly safe outside or around the ground floor of the building. The elevator up is very quick and the view from the top is good and gives a nice view of soweto and all the surrounding areas but very little information boards available to tell you what exactly you are looking at.

We did a quick day tour of jo'burg after being in south africa for 4 months and this was one of the stops on the tour which we could have skipped. The building itself isn't really kept up and there is nothing amazing about the city to see. I don't think it's worth it at all

I found the trip to the Roof of Africa worthwhile.
It's a great way to gain perspective of the city and its surrounds.
The cafe is disappointing. A touristy shop would have been a bonus. Nevertheless, it's a good way to spend 30 mins and understand the city,its suburbs and landmarks.

It's a dilapidated hotel that you have to pay to look off the roof of....not a bad view but not worth a trip in itself, the red bus takes you there
