A holiday out to South Africa promises to be momentous and unforgettable. With so much to do and so much to see, travellers to these magnificent shores may find that they lack sufficient time to see all they want to; what is evident though, is that visitors fall in love with the people and the country and often return for multiple visits. The first point of contact for many travellers is usually through the terminals of Johannesburg’s impressive OR Tambo Airport and immediately one gets the impression that something special awaits them outside those gates.
Indeed, Johannesburg is a special city with an endless array of activities to dazzle all her guests; as the commercial powerhouse of the entire continent, Johannesburg never disappoints and leaves visitors breathless with anticipation. Top attractions include the Royal Johannesburg Golf Course, the Apartheid Museum, and Fairlands Estate. Regarded as the industrial hub of western Gauteng is the town of Krugersdorp; the area mines lime, manganese, gold, iron, and asbestos, and is steeped in a rich mining history dating back to the first discovery of gold in Gauteng back in the 1880s.
Krugersdorp, though, has so much more to offer visitors; the Krugersdorp Game Reserve is a lovely park and is situated on a sprawling 1400 hectares where the likes of hippo, giraffe, buffalo, and zebra can be easily viewed. The lions are enclosed in a separate area and the game reserve offers night safaris, which are popular amongst local and international travellers alike. Another sought-after attraction are the Sterkfontein Caves, which are just 12km away from Krugersdorp; here visitors can look forward to guided tours through a breathtaking myriad of stalactite and stalagmite formations and limestone structures in the underground lake.
