Walk around Nelson Mandela Square on Saturday 11/11/17 after window shopping inside Sandton City, overall a relaxing square to sit & watch the world go by, some Cafe's & restaurants around the square. Taxi Stand only a few mins walk away on exiting.
Don't forget to negotiate your taxi fare before leaving & I paid 200.00 rand returning back to Johannesburg CBD & the driver initially asked for 400.00 The Square is suitable for all ages especially the water spray jets for children.

Just a good walk in a very modern area around Sandton.
Shops, restaurants, bars, theatre, library.
All the usual stuff to grab a coffee and watch the world go by.

We came to the square so many times during our stay In Jo’burg as it was always a different experience, the ambiance and children jumping in and out of the water fountain, people being photographed by the huge statue of Nelson Mandella, the buzz of the place just to sit and watch the people go by or a meal next to the open windows, we came back here three times as we loved it so much! The entrance to the mall just off the square was fabulous, a must go!
