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 Johannesburg's surroundings by going to Pretoria (Union Buildings, National Library of South Africa, & more), Brits (Ukutula Conservation Center & Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre) and Spas (in Benoni). Next up on the itinerary: take an exotic tour of a safari tour, wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square.
