This week we’re uncovering the hidden gems around Gauteng. We visited historical sites like Newtown and the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, the Willem Prinsloo Museum in Bapsfontein, and the Tswaing Crater. We discussed paleontology at the Cradle of Humankind, and took in a township tour in Mabopane, as well as dug for diamonds in Cullinan.

We stayed at exciting and luxurious hotels like Intundla Game Lodge and Glenburn Lodge, and dined at Court Classique Hotel in Pretoria. Then we finished off the week with a fun-filled visit to Gold Reef City Theme Park and Hotel south of Johannesburg.
