Boys Weekend in Johannesburg

Send to Kindle
World of Beer

World of Beer

With the stresses and strains on the shoulders of so many these days, it is important to break away from the treadmill of life and have a real break. A boys weekend may be just what you need to get your mind off your worries, and Joburg has plenty to offer a group of guys looking for adventurous things to do in Johannesburg.

Beer It Up at World of Beer

Most men do not need too much encouragement, but South African Breweries (SAB) has established the World of Beer to make this golden refreshment even more delicious and enjoyable. Situated in Newtown, this facility is dedicated to the world-class South African beers, the beer-making process, and the culture that surrounds it. The historical process is best enjoyed in the form of a 3D film, which takes you through the ages of Egyptian, Mesopotamian, African and European beer-making processes and how these have evolved and supported the modern South African methods. The modern design is impressive and the two complimentary beers per person make for the ideal way to round off the experience. There is a shop for branded South African beer accessories.

Museum of Transport

Museum of Transport

Tour the Stadium

Constructed specifically for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, the FNB Stadium is not only awesome to look at, but has hosted a number of very exciting sporting, musical and cultural events since its completion. Formal tours allow you and your friends to get the full history and concept of the stadium, as well as to drink in the spectacular views from its unique position.

Visit the James Hall Museum of Transport

There is no doubt about the fact that men love machines and this museum is dedicated to land transport and its history. Situated in Johannesburg Central, it really is very convenient, in addition to being interesting and even fun. The transport on show ranges from the original ox wagons and horse-drawn coaches to fire engines, trucks, trains and cars. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 09h00 to 17h00.

Culture Blast in Soweto

Scenic Flights

Scenic Flights

True South Africans know that we are all about time spent relaxing, eating and drinking with those we love most. Once a month, the Soweto Hotel hosts jazz musicians and has an afternoon, which stretches late into the night, of entertainment. A braai buffet is served and ensures that there is something for everyone to enjoy in the heart of the cultural hotspot of Soweto.

Scenic Flights

Classique Aviation in Germiston has a range of aerobatic and vintage aircraft, which include the 1936 De Havilland Tiger Moth (with an open cockpit), the Pitts Special (which does formation flying on special request), the DC3 Dakota (which seats 28 and has been flying for more than 60 years), and helicopters. Adventuring into the clear African skies will show off the landscape to perfection and be a real thrill for you and the guys.

Tour the Johannesburg Zoo at Night

There are many animal species that are far more active after dark, and these are best enjoyed on night tours of the zoo. Red pandas, glowing scorpions and the big cats promise to be exciting sights. There are a number of evening and night tour packages on offer, as well as a sleep over option!
