Johannesburg was our first stop in South Africa. Stayed in one of the best hotels named The Residency Hotel which was centrally located and right opposite Mr. Nelson Mandela's residence. Went to the Apartheid Museum where Mr. Mandela started his movement regarding the oppression and discrimination against the black people. Visited the famous Lion Park where lion and many other types of animals are kept in a sanctuary. The park has a safari to offer which goes around the whole park helping you to sight different types of animals and yes, of course, lions.
