Johannesburg — 8 nights

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: The Cradle of Humankind (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site), Pretoria (Johann van Heerden's Art Gallery, Voortrekker Monument, &more) and Lion and Safari Park (in Broederstroom). Spend the 9th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, try to win big at Gold Reef City, get to know the resident critters at Johannesburg Zoo, and don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square.
