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.
On the 22nd (Fri), see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve and then contemplate the long history of Union Buildings.
