Johannesburg

— 6 nights

City of Light

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 out of town with these interesting Johannesburg side-trips: The Cradle of Humankind (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site), The Oval (in Centurion) and Pretoria (Voortrekker Monument & Horseback Africa). Spend the 6th (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, learn about all things military at South African National Museum of Military History, visit Maboneng Precinct, and try to win big at Emperors Palace.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Johannesburg is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Amsterdam in April; daily highs in Johannesburg reach 28°C and lows reach 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to fly to Cape Town.
