Johannesburg is the starting point for some of the world's premier African safaris. With a population of just under a million and coined the "City of Gold," due to diamond and gold mining here since the 1800s which helped the city become a metropolitan center of business and culture. Flying into Johannesburg, you can explore Kruger National Park and surrounding private reserves, where cheetahs, wild dogs and the Big Five can be spotted during the day and you'll relax in luxurious  safari lodges on private reserves in the evenings. Also from Johannesburg, fly north to neighboring Botswana and explore the Chobe River on a luxury safari cruise spotting elephants from your floating suite.

Johannesburg Safari Tips & Travel Guide

Johannesburg Highlights
Since the 1800s, the city of Johannesburg has been one of South Africa's most important cities and a literal gem - this has historically been the base for much of the diamond mining that has made this country wealthy. Any trip to Johannesburg could include:
  • A visit to Kruger National Park for a traditional safari in an open-air vehicle to spot elephant, lion, cheetah, cape buffalo, giraffe, and hippo.
     
  • Exploration of coastal KwaZulu-Natal, where dolphins can be spotted off the shores.
     
  • An in-depth discovery of Swaziland, including a visit to an authetnic Zulu homestead and the Matsamo Cultural Village.
     
  • Cultural tours of Johannesburg and other major South African cities to see how they appreciate their historic past but keep a sharp eye towards the future.
