2 -3 Day Trip From Johannesburg

Hello -

We are a couple, mid 50's, never been to South Africa before. We are staying for 2 weeks in Roodepoort in a friend of a friend's house while they are away in August. Have use of their car.

Plan to do lots of things in Johannesburg and at the end of the 2 weeks have booked a Kruger safari before heading back to the UK.

We do not want to drive too far in the friends car but would like to go away for at least one 2-3 day trip out of the city.

Any suggestions?

Have been looking at Parys and Vaaldam and also Magaliesberg mountains. We'd like to browse around some attractive towns or villages in a scenic area, if possible. We'd also be grateful for any recommendations of nice accommodation while we are away.

Thank you for any help!

Johannesburg, South...

Also consider Clarens in Free State. Great quaint town full of artists and unique shops.

Magalies and Parys will be geat day trips from Roodeport.

Thank you very much - we will check out Clarens. Would it be worth visiting Lesotho as we would be near it if we went to Clarens?
