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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes South Western Townships as well as South African National Museum of Military History. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Apartheid Museum and Maboneng Precinct. Step out of Johannesburg with an excursion to The Cradle of Humankind in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site--about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Gold Reef City, browse the different shops at Sandton City Shopping Centre, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of Africa, and view the masterpieces at Mpho Art & Design House.
