From Jo'burg to the Gorge Swing
Once you bid farewell to Thornybush Game Reserve, it is time to move on to Johannesburg, South Africa. Johannesburg or Jo’burg as it is affectionately called is a great stopover before heading to Victoria Falls. Johannesburg is mainly a business destination, but it has a wealth of art galleries, museums, andparks to explore. The city is also known for the richest gold reefs in the world, and Gold Reef City was built as an amusement park and a mine tour where visitors can explore the legendary mining of the old days. The top places to visit in Johannesburg are Constitution Hill which is one of South Africa’s most important historical sites. Constitution Hill is a place where you will hear and see some shocking facts about the prisoner’s incarceration there. This was a place where many high profile political activists like Nelson Mandela and Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi were once held. Another top site to see is the Apartheid Museum which showcases the rise and fall of South Africa’s segregation and oppression and gives some understanding to many of the inequities that still exist today.
