The Johannesburg Central Business District (CBD) as seen from the observation deck of the Carlton Centre. At 50 storeys high, this skyscraper has been Africa's tallest building since 1973.

Diagonally across Diagonal Street from the diamond building in the last shot is the "KwaZulu Muti Museum of Man and Science" which isn't a museum at all but a shop crammed from floor to ceiling with products used in "Muti" which is a type of witchcraft. Selling everything you could possibly need for traditional medicine and magic, it's a really interesting and very friendly place to visit Types Of Witchcraft, Cupboard, South Africa, Medicine, Museum, Ceiling, Floor, Science, Magic

My guidebook told me that it was impossible for a photograph to really show the scale of the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
