Affectionately known as Jo’burg, South Africa’s largest city was founded around the mining industry in the rich mineral deposits of the Witwatersrand Range.
During the apartheid era, Soweto was a black-only series of townships on the outskirts of Johannesburg, and the home of many of the resistance movement’s biggest players such as Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu. Now officially an integrated part of the city, visitors can take a tour through Soweto’s colourful streets and visit sites such as Mandela House, Tutu House and the haunting and informative Apartheid Museum.
Other things to do include visiting the Gold Reef City amusement park; encountering some African wildlife at Lion Park, Croc City Crocodile & Reptile Park and Johannesburg Zoo; seeing the golden rhinoceros at the ruins of Mapungubwe; gambling or being entertained at the Montecasino leisure complex; and learning about the Zulu, Xhosa, Pedi, Basotho, Nguni and Ndebele people at Lesedi Cultural Village.
