Inside Johannesburg Airport
Johannesburg Airport, seated in the heart of Kempton Park (Ekurhuleni), Gauteng in South Africa, has undergone major changes since its inauguration in 1952. During the 1980's, many countries refrained from trading with South Africa due to sanctions imposed on them; this was due to South Africa’s stance concerning the Apartheid. Since Apartheid was lifted, the airport has seen a large spike in popularity; the recent developments since 2010, as preparation for the FIFA World Cup, surely left a positive impression on travelers utilizing the facilities. The international terminal, constructed to house the all new Airbus A380, the upgraded shopping area, the overall neat and pleasing decor off the airport inner areas, and the Gautrain Rapid Rail Link above the terminal, all contributed to the smooth running of the newly renovated airport.

Named one of the greenest cities in the world, Johannesburg has a nearly six million trees. The city takes great prides in its parks and continues to invest in planting trees particularly in places that were hardest hit by the apartheid. These man-made forests cover the city in a green blanket, and offer a pleasant contrast to the looming concrete structures. Johannesburg’s zoo offers visitors a chance to see some of the famous African wildlife from a safer and more controlled environment as opposed to taking a safari through the bush.
A few hours’ drive from the airport you will find the world-renowned Kruger National Park; this wildlife park offers an exciting natural experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares is unmatched in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.
