One of Africa’s most vibrant cities. You will be impressed by its diversity, shopping options of both local products and International Brands. Major shopping destinations like Sandton City Mall and Nelson Mandela Square offer a selection of high-end brands. Came to know about Rosebank Rooftop Market, a world-famous flea market that provides fine African crafts.
