“Get to Johannesburg and get out!” is a common statement from many whom have never been to Jo'burg but when the cricket is on you will discover Jo'burg isn’t so bad. In fact, it is not bad at all (where we go!) and remains my favourite South Africa city. There’s a ruthless yet stylish, non-brochure existence that I love though living in Sandton is far from the dangers of downtown, which certainly aren't as they were 21 years ago.

With a day spare before the test, head downtown to Museum Africa or the similarly awing but chilling Apartheid Museum. Further afield, take a tour to Soweto (South West Townships) and visit Mandela House Museum in Vilakasi Street before heading back to suave Sandton and our first of two dinner parties and a night on the square.

4km from the enormously tiny ‘Bull Ring’, Sandton is no longer a place just to be safe but a place to live. The stunning hotel (we've been upgraded to business suites!) with rooftop pool, gym, and free area shuttle (for the cricket!), is at the Gautrain station that brings you safely and conveniently from O. R. Tambo International Airport so you can be swiftly living it large in adjacent Nelson Mandela Square, home to bountiful cafes, bars, pubs, cinemas, and impressive restaurants.

After 7 nights in the ‘big smoke’ of Joburg head to glitzy Sun City for awesome golf, if you haven't already hacked Wanderer's Golf Club, or go east to famous Kruger National Park and the wilds of Africa. This said, it doesn’t matter where you go in South Africa, every city has nearby private or national parks to indulge the wilds. And if the wilds of the bush are not your thing, rest assured the smooth wilds of cricket in South Africa will create a long-lasting desire to come again and again and again.
