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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Pretoria (National Library of South Africa, Union Buildings, & more), Brits (Ukutula Conservation Center & Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre) and Sterkfontein Cave (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, learn about all things military at South African National Museum of Military History, take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, and see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Johannesburg attractions website .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are O R Tambo International and Pilanesberg International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
