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.
Get out of town with these interesting Johannesburg side-trips: Sterkfontein Cave (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site), Union Buildings (in Pretoria) and Ukutula Conservation Center (in Brits). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, contemplate the long history of Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct, buy something for everyone on your list at Jack Friedman Eastgate, and laugh and play at Gold Reef City.
