Area Activities

Johannesburg is an exciting, modern, multi-faceted and cosmopolitan city that is brimming with vitality and a seemingly endless supply of historical, cultural and contemporary attractions and activities for visitors to enjoy.

Located in the popular and fashionable Rosebank district, Hyatt Regency Johannesburg is excellently placed to allow guests easy access to the city’s many highlights either on foot or by public transport.

Rosebank is renowned as a premier shopping destination. The unique and colourful African Craft Market is just a ten-minute walk from the hotel and is the place to find original souvenirs and handicrafts including fabric, jewellery, clothing, carvings, beadwork, ceramics and artworks from regions throughout Africa. The Craft Market is located within Rosebank Mall, a thoroughly modern shopping and entertainment complex which features around seventy outlets from globally-renowned brands, numerous cafes and restaurants, a  multi-screen cinema, fitness centre and dance studio.

Guests of the hotel who enjoy golf and other outdoor sports activities are well catered for by the Killarney Country Club which is a five-minute ride away and offers a superb eighteen-hole golf course, lawn bowling, squash and tennis courts, a swimming pool and a gymnasium.

Johannesburg’s diverse history and the city’s role in the struggle against apartheid are presented via a number of museums and places of historical interest. Unmissable venues such as the Apartheid Museum, the Peacemakers Museum and the house in which former president Nelson Mandela and his family lived between 1946 and the 1990s can all be reached in less than thirty minutes by taxi from Hyatt Regency.  Other notable museums that are similarly accessible from the hotel include the fascinating and interactive South African Museum of Military History, the James Hall Museum of Transport which has a collection of vintage vehicles spanning a century of transport in Johannesburg from early horse-drawn vehicles to rare steam-driven buses.

Johannesburg has many green spaces which provide a welcome respite from the buzz of the city. James and Ethel Grey Park, a ten-minute ride from Hyatt Regency, is regarded by many as the city’s most beautiful park, with the spectacular views of the Johannesburg afforded by its landscaped and elevated paths best witnessed at sunrise or sunset. A little way out of the city itself, and around a forty-minute ride from the hotel, Johannesburg Lion Park promises visitors a truly authentic and unforgettable South African experience. Voted one of the world’s top 100 tourist destinations, at this sanctuary and breeding facility dedicated to the conservation of rarer African species guests can observe at close range and interact with native wildlife including giraffes, lions, cheetahs, wild dogs and hyenas.
