Johannesburg, South Africa

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.
Step out of Johannesburg to go to Pretoria and see Voortrekker Monument, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, try your luck at Emperors Palace, contemplate the long history of Mandela House, and don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square.
