Johannesburg & Surrounds

Johannesburg is the main hub into southern Africa and flight schedules sometimes necessitate a stop-over here. Located in the Gauteng Province, the historical cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria offer visitors plenty in the way of shopping and entertainment through its network of malls, casinos, flea markets and suburban stores.

Both cities house a number of museums, including the Hector Peterson Museum, Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, Museum of Military History, Pretoria Art Museum and MuseumAfrica.

Johannesburg and Pretoria are also home to several theatres and playhouses, offering authentic South African musical performances, drama, ballet and local comedies.

On the outskirts of these bustling metropoles, the cityscapes give way to Highveld grasslands that stretch out to the province's borders. In Johannesburg, this extends south to the Sedibeng region and the Vaal River, and west towards the popular Cradle of Humankind, Sterkfontein Caves and the country village of Magaliesburg.

At Pretoria, it extends north into the Dinokeng tourism region, which is home to the quaint mining town of Cullinan with its diamond history, and vast savannahs that feature a number of game reserves.
