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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Apartheid Museum and Mandela House. Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Wild Cave Adventures (in Krugersdorp), Union Buildings (in Pretoria) and Montecasino (in Sandton). And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at South African National Museum of Military History, wander the streets of Maboneng Precinct, and ponder the world of politics at Constitution Hill.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Johannesburg holiday planner.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Cape Town.
