Johannesburg is reputed to have more trees than any other city in the world (10 million trees, twice the human population). Surprising huh!!! Joburg has quite a few parks and gardens that are worth a visit if you feel like relaxing. My advice would be to go to Zoo Lake (great Moyo restaurant there), also Emmerentia Dam - Shakespears garden is lovely and very interesting over Sundays (A lot of Ethiopean and Nigerian wedding processions passing through). The Wilds and the Roodepoort Botanical gardens are also great spots to relax!!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
