Just a happy guy who loves travelling, loves Africa and feels that travelling changes you forever.

Kang – Johannesburg, South Africa

Leaving the Kalahari behind we make our way to the North Western Province and arrive in Belvedere Estate in the afternoon where our tour comes to an end. An optional traditional dinner at Belvedere Estate is available for those wanting to spend the evening sharing stories before making their way back home.

Johannesburg is the biggest and most populated South African city and is the second biggest city in all of Africa (after Cairo). Gold was discovered in the mineral-rich Witwaterstrand in 1886 by George Harrison, an Australian prospector. His discovery resulted in a massive gold rush as fortune-hunters flocked to the region from all parts of the world. A large labour force of contract workers quickly sprung to work in the mines, and within the span of just three years, Johannesburg transformed into South Africa’s biggest settlement. This city is the now the economic and financial centre of the country and although mining no longer takes place within the bounds of the city, the headquarters of the majority of mining businesses can be located here. Johannesburg is also renowned as the world’s biggest man-made forest, with more than ten million trees planted throughout the massive city.
