City of Light

Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Popular historic sites such as Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct and Mandela House are in your itinerary. Do your shopping at 24 Boxes and Irene Village Mall. Venture out of the city with trips to Union Buildings (in Pretoria), Lion and Safari Park (in Broederstroom) and Balloon Rides (in Muldersdrift). Spend the 27th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct, take in the exciting artwork at Kim Sacks Gallery, examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, and try your luck at Emperors Palace.
