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.
Apartheid Museum and Nan Hua Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Ukutula Conservation Center and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Explore Johannesburg's surroundings by going to Pretoria (Hennops Hiking Trail, Pretoria Main Train Station, & more), Lesedi Cultural Village (in Lanseria) and Hartbeespoort (Elephant Sanctuary Hartbeesport Dam, Bush Babies Monkey Sanctuary, & more). The adventure continues: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Regina Mundi, shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.
