Pensions in Johannesburg
Johannesburg is far the largest city in South Africa, and is an interesting mix of diverse cultures, historical landmarks, and cultural icons. To get your bearings and orient yourself within this massive city, head up to the Top of Africa, on the 50th floor of the Carlton Centre. At the top of the city's tallest building, you'll be rewarded with panoramic vistas of the surrounding areas. There are countless museums to explore in the city, many of which can give you a better understanding of the diversity and once turbulent past of the city and of South Africa as a whole. The Apartheid Museum is the largest and most popular, so be sure not to miss it on your visit. Johannesburg certainly does not disappoint in the area of recreational activities. For the adventurous, visit the nearby Lion Park to drive through the plains in your car, and then get up close and personal with the lion cubs. Or, visit the Montecasino Bird Gardens to see some native species not found anywhere else in the world. There are also two former gold mines worth a tour: the Old Kromdraai Gold Mine and Ferreira's Mine.
