Flights to Johannesburg – South Africa’s largest metropolis
Johannesburg is the second largest metropolis in Africa. Bustling with life and a diverse cross-section of people, Joburg or Jozi (as the city is often called) has a lot to offer. The city is home to 10 million trees and is often referred to as a man-made forest. A young city, Johannesburg began developing as a result of boom in the gold industry.

When you visit Johannesburg, you must plan well as there are many places to visit and all are too beautiful to be missed. The various interesting places to visit include Apartheid Museum, Gold Reef City, Constitution Hill, Montecasino, Lion Park, Cradle of Humankind, South African National Museum of Military History, Botanical Garden and Johannesburg Zoo.
