This malaria-free game reserve offers spectacular scenery and a chance to spot the 'big five' up close. Experience with sheer awe and amazement these animals in their natural environment. If you're lucky, you may see a herd of elephants crossing within metres of your car or a lion lazing in the sun.
While in Johannesburg, also consider visiting Liliesleaf Farm. This interactive museum was once the secret headquarters of the African National Congress and tells the story of the struggle for liberation amidst the apartheid regime.
