Explore Johannesburg in a Campervan

The world's eyes were turned on South Africa this summer with the buzz of the World Cup and the vuvuzelas, yet even though Spain has taken the trophy home it doesn't mean the party is over. If you have the chance, one place that certainly deserves a visit is Johannesburg, located in South Africa's wealthiest province, it is also the largest city in the country. This bustling metropolis is set on mineral rich (we're talking gold and diamonds) land and enjoys a generally sunny and dry climate punctuated by late day rainstorms in the summer months, which is from October to April in this part of the world. As public transportation is not always dependable a motorhome rental is a great way to explore Johannesburg to its fullest. Take a tour to the town of Soweto, the Nelson Mandela Bridge, or Gold Reef City, which is built around a mine and is a representation of what such a town would have looked like in the 1900s, complete with miner's houses. If you're looking for a little break from the urban sights then head to Sun City, two and a half hours outside of Johannesburg, this is a playground of resorts, casinos and safaris that will keep you more than occupied.
