Johannesburg

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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sandton City Shopping Centre and The Mall of Rosebank. Popular historic sites such as Constitution Hill and Union Buildings are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Irene Village Market (in Pretoria) and Montecasino (in Sandton). Spend the 25th (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: try to win big at Emperors Palace, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, and buy something for everyone on your list at 44 Stanley.

In October, daily temperatures in Johannesburg can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
