Towards the end of last year I got to discover Joburg's equivalent to the Midlands Meander. A friend had recommended Roots to me - an awarding-winning restaurant situated at Forum Homini hotel, Kromdraai (Magaliesburg). Having only been in Joburg for a couple of months, I was eager to try it out with my boyfriend. It was only a 40 minute drive from home - perfect for a mini weekend getaway. We stayed over for the night, and the next day drove all around Cradle of Humankind. I've been back twice since then. Wow. Do it.
