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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pretoria (Union Buildings, Pretoria National Botanical Garden, & more), Brits (Ukutula Conservation Center & Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre) and Hartbeespoort (Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary & Hartbeespoort Dam - Snake and Animal Park). Spend the 13th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 21st (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and brush up on your military savvy at South African National Museum of Military History.

For where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Johannesburg trip site .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are OR Tambo International Airport and Pilanesberg International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
