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: Midrand (Lory Park & Nizamiye Mosque), The Cradle of Humankind (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site) and Fourways (Bounce & Croc City Crocodile and Reptile Park). Spend the 7th (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 13th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, steep yourself in history at Mandela House, try your luck at Montecasino, and don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square.
