Not only does this bustling metropolis hold riches, but it’s also a delight for visitors from around the world. The South Western Township, lovingly known as Soweto, is the largest settlement in the region that originated during the Apartheid era and has since become a vibrant and colourful destination for an interesting cultural tour while on a South African safari.
Visiting the city need not mean missing out on the wildlife of the country. The Rhino and Lion Park gives you the chance to play with lion cubs, or embark upon a game drive through the lands occupied by prides of lions.
The Apartheid Museum allows you to trace the footsteps of South African history, while Gold Reef City offers thrills in the form of roller coasters and a tour down a mineshaft.
No matter what you’re after during your South African safari, Johannesburg is the place to find it and so much more.
