Since 1973 the Carlton Centre has been the tallest skyscraper on the continent. At 223 metres, it deserves to be known as the Top of Africa. The building houses both offices and shops, and has over 46% of its floor area below ground level. The Carlton Centre was designed by the American architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and cost over R88 million to build. Head to the observation deck and enjoy a panoramic view of the City of Gold.

An interesting day spent at the Carlton Centre and surrounds, be prepared for a lot of walking, comfortable flat shoes is a must. We went to the tower to have a birds eye view of the surrounding...

You get a nice view of the city, but there's little info about what's you're seeing. The facility itself looks very dated. Worth going if getting an aerial view is important to you,
Being able to see Johannesburg and surrounds from the tallest building in Johannesburg should be a must for all visitors. Just a pity about parking and the surrounds.
