The perfect holiday in Johannesburg

Johannesburg was built around the gold rush and a day exploring the city makes a great start to your South Africa holiday.

Johannesburg, South Africa's largest city, is undergoing a renaissance and has seen a positive change over the years. Originally build around the gold rush, Johannesburg is now a centre for South African history and culture.

To get the best out of Johannesburg you need to explore the hot spots and experience the friendly and welcoming locations in the city. Visit the Apartheid Museum to understand the history of South Africa, and see how far it has come, but also take time to visit the up and coming suburbs of the city, and explore many of the relaxed bars and cafes of the city.

Johannesburg is an ideal location to explore the country. Head off on safari in the Kruger National Park, fly on to Cape Town to explore the southern area of the country, or head on to Pretoria and head off on the Blue Train, which departs from the there.
