Johannesburg

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.
Visiting Safaris and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Marievale Bird Sanctuary (in Nigel), Brewhogs Brewery (in Midrand) and Pretoria (Hazel Food Market, Hedianga Farm, &more). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, steep yourself in history at Mandela House, try to win big at Emperors Palace, and see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum.
