Forming part of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality, Sandton is known as a very affluent area/suburb in South Africa’s Gauteng Province. Its name is the amalgamation of two of Sandton’s popular suburbs, Sandown and Bryanston. Following urban decay in downtown Johannesburg which resulted in numerous corporate offices abandoning Johannesburg’s CBD for Sandton in the 1990s, Sandton rose and expanded and became the new financial district of South Africa and Johannesburg’s premier business centre.
But it’s not all serious business in sleek and sunny Sandton, for there’s also a host of tourist attractions that can help fill the time for locals and visitors. Like the Cumberland Bird Sanctuary in Bryanston that promises a fun-filled family day out. Providing 5.2 hectares of protected area, the sanctuary is home to a rich collection of exotic trees, incredible plants, plus approximately 82 different bird species.
Boosting Sandton’s reputation even further is its many beautiful locations offering a sophisticated vibe. Such as nightclubs, bars, and restaurants, most of which are conveniently located within walking distance from the Gautrain station.
And one of the main attractions in Sandton is Sandton City, which just so happens to be the biggest (and some say most inspiring) shopping mall in the entire Sandton / Johannesburg.
Located right in the middle of the South African financial district in Johannesburg (the very spot that made this area so famous in the first place), Sandton City Mall is known for many fabulous facts. Like its 300+ stores and well-loved brands like New York Minute, Forever New, and MediRite Pharmacy.
Rosebank Mall is another powerful option for those in the mood to shop. Regarded as another of South Africa’s most regal shopping malls, Rosebank manages to merge the powerful and raw magic of Africa with European elegance and grace. The result? An amazing 62,000 m² of space offering fantastic shopping- and entertainment options in the form of stores, restaurants, movies, etc. And did we mention there are more than enough parking bays – like, over 2,200 of them? Drop in at Rosebank Mall and experience a well-balanced tenant mix including the likes of Aldo, Sorbet, Tread + Miller, and more.
Over in Randburg, Cresta Shopping Centre awaits with its 260+ shopping store options. It’s one of the biggest shopping malls in the country, but also one of the oldest and most trusted, ensuring the centre enjoys a rather nostalgic vibe with locals. Offering shoppers a delightful mix of fashion, food, décor, tech and other services, Cresta houses popular brands like Apple iStore, Coricraft, and Refinery.
44 Stanley may be more of a garden courtyard than a gigantic mall, but rest assured you'll still be able to get your shopping fix at various interesting little shops, chic restaurants, and independent boutiques. From dining and drinking to shopping or working, enjoy 44 Stanley’s exceptional and enticing ambience via various stores including Moma Apparel, Petal & Post, and Bed Bath Body.
Don’t discount Atholl Square just because it’s known as a friendly neighbourhood shopping centre. One can still do some decent damage with a credit card at various of its excellent eateries, coffee shops, clothing stores, and more. Cell City, Posh Collection, and Spar Supermarket are just three of the Square’s most popular shops awaiting your presence.
