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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Johannesburg: Incendo Distillery (in Hartbeespoort), The National Heritage Monument (in Mogale City) and Pretoria (Voortrekker Monument, Pretoria National Botanical Garden, &more). Spend the 5th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, brush up on your military savvy at South African National Museum of Military History, try to win big at Montecasino, and get a dose of the wild on Regent Safaris.
