Sojo is divided into 7 precincts:

  • Greater Wemmer Pan;
  • Phumelela Gaming and Leisure;
  • Sojo Business Form;
  • Thaba ya Batswana;
  • Johannesburg Expo Centre;
  • The Soweto Tourism Association; and
  • Gold Reef City Precinct.

     



Other attractions and proposed developments include: 

The North Shore development
The development of a science museum, educational training facilities, an electricity workshop, science facilities and recreation facilities has been proposed. All these recreation facilities are linked to school programmes and the project is in the initial stages. It has been included in the City's Integrated Development Plan (IDP) and the region's Spatial Development Framework.

Johannesburg Expo Centre
The area around Nasrec will change dramatically in the build up to the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
The whole area is to be devoted to commercial, leisure and tourist activities, with new exhibition halls, a hotel, a trade centre, an open-air theatre and a music arena being planned.

The objective of the Expo Centre is to provide as many activity areas for visitors within the same secure environment, while outdoor eating areas and restaurants will provide a broad range of ethnic foods.





FNB Soccer City
FNB Soccer City will host the official opening and the final soccer match and the official closing ceremony of 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup. Major precinct developments and upgrades are planned. The area will be better integrated with the Expo Centre to the south, along with links to a transportation node serving the area.

Other sites of interest in the region are:

  • Gold Reef City Casino and Theme Park;
  • Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve;
  • Johannesburg Exhibition Centre;
  • Rietvlei Zoo Farm;
  • Iron Age sites in the Klipriviersberg area;
  • Historical graves at Mondeor and Kibler Park (Danie Theron); and
  • Santarama mini town.
