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.
Constitution Hill and Gandhi Square will appeal to history buffs. For shopping fun, head to Sandton City Shopping Centre or The Bryanston Organic and Natural Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Pretoria (Irene Village Market, Union Buildings, & more), East Rand Mall (in Boksburg) and Montecasino (in Sandton). Spend the 28th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, browse the different shops at The Mall of Rosebank, and examine the collection at Apartheid Museum.
