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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Johannesburg: Ukutula Conservation Center (in Brits), Pretoria (National Library of South Africa, Kruger House Museum, &more) and Spas (in Benoni). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, and learn about all things military at South African National Museum of Military History.
