Some tours include a stop at the Carlton Center. Unfortunately, you can't really walk around in downtown JoBurg as we know....Pay your small fee, ride up straight to the 50th floor, take some pictures, that's it, 20 min max.

Top of Africa has an amazing view of Jo'burg, you can see all the streets and much more....Unfortunately, the interior is really old and it's really difficult to find a place to buy tickets, but if you ask security guys, they'll gladly help.

It's way affordable to access and there isn't a better view of Johannesburg. However, you may just get to see it all behind glass. Open rooftop access now requires special permission.

Yes, you can see the city from here. That is about it. They really should update though, I think the info at the top is about 25 years out of date.

Unlike other attractions this one stays open after 5pm and with safe underground parking and only only costing R15 per adult... It really is worth going especially just before sunset... stunning. The glass wasn't perfectly clean that is the only bad thing I can say about it.
