Johannesburg, South Africa — 32 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.
Nan Hua Temple and Regina Mundi will appeal to history buffs. Get in touch with nature at Off-Road Tours and Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Johannesburg: Pretoria (Sacred Heart Cathedral, Melrose House, &more), Croc City Crocodile and Reptile Park (in Fourways) and The Cradle Nature Reserve (in Lanseria). There's still lots to do: shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, get outside with Outdoor Activities, stroll through Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve, and see the interesting displays at Lindfield Victorian House Museum.

Windhoek, Namibia — 8 nights

Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.

Next up on the itinerary: sample the fine beverages at Naute Kristall Cellar and Destillery, examine the collection at Owela Museum, stroll around Zoo Park, and play a few rounds at Omeya Golf and Residential Oasis.
