Johannesburg is nicknamed the ‘City of Gold’ for its 19th Century origins as a gold mining settlement. Also home to the township of Soweto, the occasional home of Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, Johannesburg is the largest and most affluent city in South Africa. Tourists usually use Johannesburg as a brief stopover en-route to the region’s many safari destinations, but it’s worth a day here to discover rich history and excellent story telling by the city’s top guides.
