Johannesburg, South Africa Day 1
Known as Joburg, Jozi, or Egoli 'the City of Gold '; Johannesburg serves as the main international airport when arriving in southern Africa. Spend a night here on arrival to acclimate, and as South Africa's economic capital, there are plenty of upmarket hotels. While here, do a tour of Soweto, where Mandela and Tutu both lived. Johannesburg is the hub for travel within Southern Africa, and this convenient airport hotel provides rest and relaxation before onward travel, with blackout curtains and soundproof rooms, early and late checkouts and a 24-hour restaurant and bar with outside terrace.
