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.
Shop till you drop at Art Eye Gallery and Pretoria Farmers Market. Apartheid Museum and I was shot in Joburg will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Johannesburg: Pretoria (Woodlands Boulevard & Union Buildings). The adventure continues: learn about all things military at South African National Museum of Military History, ponder the world of politics at Constitution Hill, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and take in the exciting artwork at Kim Sacks Gallery.
