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.
Escape the urban bustle at Horseback Africa and Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lesedi Cultural Village and Monte casino bird park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Dinokeng Game Reserve (in Hammanskraal), Mountain Sanctuary Park (in Magaliesburg) and Liliesleaf Farm & Museum (in Rivonia). Spend the 7th (Wed) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Elephant Sanctuary Hartbeesport Dam, Head underground at Wonder Caves, and enjoy breathtaking views from Carlton Centre.
