Although a relatively young city, Sandton offers a wealth of indoor and outdoor recreation. Sandton City is the internationally renowned complex where the best of Africa meets with some of the world's finest shopping, all under one roof. Not to mention wining and dining for every appetite imaginable, a state of the art Cinema Complex, not one but two of the continent's finest hotels, banks, foreign exchange and travel agencies, exclusive boutiques, hair and beauty - the list is endless, with over 260 stores stretching from fashion to fantasy within an elegant and secure shopping environment.
Amongst the many pleasures of exploring Sandton's four nature reserves, two bird sanctuaries and five river trails, visitors could see 47 species of indigenous trees, numerous indigenous shrubs and wild flowers, over 170 species of birds and, if lucky, several different kinds of small mammals. The two historical sites are of great interest and three recreation centres provide an extremely wide range of entertainment, leisure activities and interesting courses to suit all tastes.
