Johannesburg is the largest city in Africa and often referred to as the economic hub of the continent. This metropolitan city began as a 19th century gold-mining settlement, for this reason Johannesburg is known as ‘the city of gold’. Johannesburg is home to Soweto (this is the abbreviation of SOuth WEstern Township) one of the largest township settlements in Africa . Soweto has deep apartheid history; it was home to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Mandela’s former residence is now the Mandela House museum. This world class African city boasts the most ethnic diversity in the country. There are a number of activities and attractions within Johannesburg. The Apartheid Museum combined with a bicycle tour through Soweto is an excellent way to learn about the country’s past and present.
