Discover the hidden gems of Johannesburg! This South African city once started as a gold-mining city and has now grown to become one of the largest cities in the country. Joburg is often a starting point for a trip to the Kruger Park to spot the Big Five, but is also attractive to stay a couple of extra days in to discover the city itself. A well-known neighbourhood in Johannesburg is Soweto, the former living area of both Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. In this area you can nowadays find the Nelson Mandela National Museum and Apartheid Museum. Explore the nature around the city in the Herman Ekstein Park, which has a romantic boating lake and is opposite the Johannesburg Zoo. Enjoy!
