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 South African National Museum of Military History. Visiting Lion and Safari Park and Alberts Farm will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Union Buildings (in Pretoria), Helivate Helicopter Services (in Krugersdorp) and Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris (in Magaliesburg). Spend the 27th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Next up on the itinerary: try your luck at Gold Reef City, wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct, buy something for everyone on your list at 24 Boxes, and steep yourself in history at Mandela House.
