Johannesburg, South Africa

— 15 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.
Explore Johannesburg's surroundings by going to Pretoria (Horseback Africa, National Library of South Africa, &more), Irene@Smuts Market (in Centurion) and Ukutula Conservation Center (in Brits). Spend the 23rd (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 1st (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, try your luck at Montecasino, and get in on the family fun at Gold Reef City.
