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.
For shopping fun, head to Sandton City Shopping Centre or 44 STANLEY. Step out of Johannesburg with an excursion to Lion and Safari Park in Broederstroom--about 56 minutes away. Pack the 11th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Gold Reef City. And it doesn't end there: browse the eclectic array of goods at Market on Main, stop by Sandton City, and see the interesting displays at Apartheid Museum.

To see reviews, maps, photos, and tourist information, read our Johannesburg custom trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are OR Tambo International Airport and Pilanesberg International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in February, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
