Johannesburg, South Africa — 12 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.
Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Zipline. Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: The Cradle of Humankind (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site), Ukutula Conservation Center (in Brits) and Union Buildings (in Pretoria). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, steep yourself in history at Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct, don't miss a visit to South Western Townships, and get in on the family fun at Gold Reef City.

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania — 6 nights
