It's a Sunday afternoon and I am with a wonderful companion at the Mall of Africa. At the time of writing this (February 2017), it is alleged to be "South Africa’s biggest single-phase shopping mall development to date... boasting over 300 shops" (source www.atterbury.co.za).

The mall opened on 28 April 2016 and is located between the two economic hubs of Pretoria and Johannesburg. It is my first time there and just locating a parking (and remembering where we parked) is a bit of a challenge. 

Inside the mall, there are many options. It does not feel crammed up at all, but is rather big yet inviting. I particularly liked the Food Court because as a foodie and travel writer, I am presented with a lot of options to try out. 

There is a lot of room to walk around and the ceilings are high and decorated. This gives the shopper a feeling of openness and space. It is the ideal shopping location if you are into big malls as there are many places to shop. 

If you are around Midrand, then this is the place to be, even if it is to come just once and have a uniquely big shopping experience.
