Carlton Centre Tours

Carlton Centre
Johannesburg has most of Africa's tallest buildings, and the building that's held the title of Africa's tallest office building for nearly four decades is the Carlton Centre.

The Carlton Centre is a combination office building and shopping center. The 50-storey building stands at 732 feet, but almost half of its floor area is below the ground level – that's where the majority of the shopping is located, in an underground shopping mall that's one of the city's top shopping destinations. Until 1997, the Carlton Centre was connected via this underground mall to the luxury Carlton Hotel.

The top floor of the Carlton Centre is known as the “Top of Africa,” and offers some of the best views overlooking Johannesburg.

Practical Info

Entry to the top floor viewing deck is SAR 15 for adults, SAR 10 for children under the age of 12. The Top of Africa is open Monday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, and Sunday 9am-2pm.
Address: Johannesburg, South Africa
Hours: The Top of Africa: open Monday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, and Sunday 9am-2pm.
Admission: For Top of Africa: SAR 15 for adults, SAR 10 for children under age 12

JOHANNESBURG EXPERIENCECultural Tours

SPECIAL OFFER

JOHANNESBURG EXPERIENCE

Johannesburg is the world's largest city not built on a coastline, or on a lake or river. That's why Joburg is also called the world's biggest 'dry port'. More than half of the cargo that arrives through the ports of Durban and Cape Town arrives at the container terminal at City Deep. Even though Johannesburg is well over 120 years old (founded on 4 October 1886 during the gold rush), it is still one of the youngest major cities in the world.There is only one other city on the continent that is bigger than Joburg, and that is the bustling metropolis of Cairo in Egypt. Johannesburg is the second biggest city on Africa.
