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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Constitution Hill and Melrose Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Pretoria (Voortrekker Monument & Union Buildings). Spend the 27th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, try your luck at Emperors Palace, don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square, and wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct.
