“Joburg has a lot more history than meets the eye. I’ve really enjoyed visiting some of the apartheid sites, the Cradle of Humankind, Maboneng Precinct just to name a few. And all of them have a rich history and story to them. If you’re looking for a very affordable family outing in Joburg, then I recommend you pay Lilliesleaf Fam in Rivonia a visit”
