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.

Venture out of the city with trips to Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens (in Roodepoort) and The Cradle of Humankind (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site). Spend the 15th (Fri) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, don't miss a visit to Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct, and try to win big at Emperors Palace.
