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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Safaris and Room Escape Games. Venture out of the city with trips to Sterkfontein Cave (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site), Brits (Ukutula Conservation Center & Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre) and Horseback Africa (in Pretoria). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Nelson Mandela Square, see the interesting displays at SAB World of Beer, enjoy breathtaking views from Carlton Centre, and get outside with Greenstone Mall.

To find traveler tips, maps, reviews, and tourist information, use the Johannesburg trip itinerary maker site.

Kuwait City, Kuwait to Johannesburg is an approximately 14- hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight.
