Johannesburg and its surrounds offer markedly different attractions. The provincial capital of Gauteng is a city built on visions of wealth and stature. With gold mines on the outskirts of the city, you’ll find contrasting cultures and experiences fusing together to create a city unique in its own identity. Dynamic, fast paced and vibrant, Johannesburg holidays will greatly appeal to city dwellers, shopaholics and fans of authentically produced cuisine. Pretoria holidays offer something of a departure from this, as a quiet city lying in a sheltered valley surrounded by the hills of the Magaliesberg mountain range. Popular pursuits here include a variety of museums focusing on cultural history, the Pretoria Botanical Gardens, Wonderboom and Groenkloof Nature Reserves and the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary.
