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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Art Eye Gallery and Kim Sacks Gallery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Apartheid Museum and Union Buildings. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Johannesburg: Ukutula Conservation Center (in Brits), Zipline (in Rustenburg) and Kromdraai Gold Mine (in Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Constitution Hill, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, view the masterpieces at Everard Read Gallery, and browse the exhibits of Erika Turvey Art Gallery & Studio.

To see maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Johannesburg trip itinerary planning site .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are O R Tambo International and Pilanesberg International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Johannesburg are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
