Founded on 4 October 1886, Johannesburg is one of the youngest major cities in the world, and a fantastic holiday destination.
There's plenty to see and do in Joburg; visit the Apartheid Museum to discover the area's history or head to Gold Reef City for some family fun.
If you want a break from the city, take a stroll through the world's largest man-made forest - there are over 10 million trees to see!
For a taste of local cuisine, try biltong and droewors - delicious!
