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.
Get some historical perspective at Constitution Hill and Mandela House. Museum-lovers will appreciate Apartheid Museum and Nelson Mandela Foundation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Johannesburg: Pretoria (Union Buildings & Voortrekker Monument). Spend the 5th (Wed) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Gold Reef City, take in panoramic vistas at Top of Africa, don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square, and get to know the fascinating history of Oriental Plaza.
