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 a sense of the local culture at Maboneng Precinct and Mandela House. Shop till you drop at Art Eye Gallery and Kim Sacks Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Balloon Rides (in Muldersdrift), Pretoria (Union Buildings, Voortrekker Monument, & more) and Ukutula Lion Park (in Brits). Spend the 29th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: make a trip to Constitution Hill, take in the exciting artwork at Alice Art Gallery, examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

Lagos, Nigeria to Johannesburg is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Lagos to Johannesburg. Traveling from Lagos in July, expect nights in Johannesburg to be colder, around 5°C, while days are little chillier, around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
