Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Kick off your visit on the 17th (Mon): examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, then ponder the world of politics at Constitution Hill, and then examine the collection at Lindfield Victorian House Museum.

To see other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Johannesburg trip itinerary maker.

Mumbai (Bombay), India to Johannesburg is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Mumbai (Bombay) to Johannesburg due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Mumbai (Bombay) in April, plan for little chillier days in Johannesburg, with highs around 28°C, while nights are much colder with lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel to Cape Town.

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
