Johannesburg

— 10 nights

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.
Get some cultural insight at Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct. Visiting Lion and Safari Park and Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Helivate Helicopter Services (in Krugersdorp) and Union Buildings (in Pretoria). Spend the 27th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Mandela House, try your luck at Montecasino, brush up on your military savvy at South African National Museum of Military History, and relax and rejuvenate at Mowana Day Spa.

Lagos, Nigeria to Johannesburg is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also fly. The time zone changes from West Africa Standard Time to South Africa Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Lagos in December, with highs in Johannesburg at 33°C and lows at 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
