As you may remember, about 2 weeks ago, I had spend about 4 day in the lovely Johannesburg, South Africa for the Joburg Shopping Festival . Now, for all my Kenyans and non-South African people, let me explain what the Joburg Shopping Festival is. The Joburg shopping Festival is a 2 week fabulous affair that was created as away to show travellers that Joburg is not just city that focuses only on business, it is also a city that offers travellers a trip that the will never forget. In Johannesburg you not only work can, you also play hard. Now, I bet you are wondering why I was there.

About 2 weeks ago I spent about 4 amazing day in beautiful Johannesburg, South Africa and got the chance to experience the Joburg Shopping Festival for the very first time. Now, for all my Kenyans and non-South African people the Joburg Shopping Festival is a 2 week fabulous affair that was created as away to show travellers that Joburg is not just city that focuses only on business, it is also a city that offers us travellers a trip that we will never forget. “In Johannesburg you not only work hard, you also play hard.”
During my stay I made amazing new blogger friends from all over Africa, ate a lot, partied hard and most importantly shopped till I dropped. The trip was everything I wanted and more and would have never been possible if it was not for South African Airways, Gauteng Tourism and City Lodge Hotel Newtown. With that said, I thought I would give you all a glimpse into my 4 days in Johannesburg for the Joburg Shopping Festival.   

DAY 1: First night in Johannesburg was spent at the Four Season at a welcome dinner. I got to meet everyone behind the Joburg Shopping Festival and got a chance to meet and hang out with the blogger I was going to spend the next 4 days with. It was Fabulous.

After the shoot, we took a quick detour and visited the Madela House in Soweto. When you visit Johannesburg, please make the time to visit the Mandela House. Trust me, you will not regret it.
