Carlton Panorama - Johannesburg

carlton panorama johannesburgThe top of Carlton Centre offers the visitor astounding views of Johannesburg. The Carlton Centre is tallest building in Africa offering a spectacular bird's eye view from the 50th floor. The entrance to the Carlton Centre is on the upper level of the Carlton Shopping Centre in Commissioner street. At 223 metres (730 ft), The Carlton Centre is the tallest building in Africa and about half the height of the Willis Tower (the former Sears Tower) in Chicago. It was the tallest building in the southern hemisphere when originally completed. The building houses both offices and shops, and has over 46 per cent of the floor area below ground level. A viewing deck on the 50th floor offers views of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

This is an ideal orientation experience for visitors, contrasting the old and the new parts of this metropolis. Originally a mining town, Johannesburg is characterized by the ever-present mine dumps that look like hills and add to the city's distinct silhouette. A valuable educational outing for children, a visit here demonstrates the structure of a city and its evolution through the years.
