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 Mandela House. Shop till you drop at Kim Sacks Gallery and I was shot in Joburg. Step out of Johannesburg with an excursion to Union Buildings in Pretoria--about 56 minutes away. Spend the 22nd (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Constitution Hill, take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, and try your luck at Emperors Palace.
