South Africa's largest city, known locally as Jozi or Jo'burg, embodies modern Africa. The city's most famous resident, Nelson Mandela, lived just up the road from the stylish Residence Boutique Hotel, a member of the AFAR Collection. Mandela found inspiration at the Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa, which is where he penned his autobiography. Don't high tea at the Fairlawns Boutique Hotel and Spa. For some city respite, visit the Clico Boutique Hotel in the trendy suburb of Rosebank.
