Johannesburg

— 21 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.
Escape the urban bustle at Lion and Safari Park and Helivate Helicopter Services. Do some cultural sightseeing at Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct. Get out of town with these interesting Johannesburg side-trips: Pretoria (Kruger House Museum, Sammy Marks House, &more), Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris (in Magaliesburg) and Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site (The Cradle of Humankind, Kromdraai Gold Mine, &more). Spend the 25th (Fri) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: try out the rides at Gold Reef City, try your luck at Montecasino, stop by Maboneng Precinct, and take a stroll through Melville Neighborhood.

Lagos, Nigeria to Johannesburg is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also fly. The time zone changes from West Africa Standard Time (WAT) to South Africa Standard Time (SAST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Lagos in December; daily highs in Johannesburg reach 33°C and lows reach 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
