Romantic getaways in Johannesburg

If you're looking for a uniquely romantic destination that mixes fascinating history, lively culture and a spectacular natural setting, Johannesburg may be the perfect spot for your next couples' vacation. South Africa's largest city is a hotbed of urban renewal, with a trendy dining scene, nightlife, and shopping to rival any international city. Culture vultures will be more than entertained, with a choice of theaters and galleries and an eclectic selection of museums covering everything from apartheid to beer and the city's gold rush days. It's also an ideal starting point to experience the romance of the African landscape, and get up close to some big game on a wildlife safari in a nearby national park – and its southern hemisphere location makes it perfect for a winter honeymoon in the sun.
