"Our base of operations" Johannesburg by jessicadf

Johannesburg Travel Guide: 1,108 reviews and 2,323 photos

For our trip to South Africa, our main base was Johannesburg, where we have relatives. We stayed at our cousin's home when not at Kruger, Mahakalas or the Garden Route. In addition, we attended the wedding of one of our cousins in Johannesburg.

    It was the middle of Winter when we were there -- it was *very* chilly! The Lesedi folks weren't shirtless... rather, they might have been shirtless, but they were wearing thick blankets as shawls.

    Why are you wearing a warm jacket at the Lesedi cultural village?? The natives are shirtless....
