24 hour layover at Joburg

I'm travelling with my three children and wife. We've got about 24 hours between arriving at Johannesburg Intl and a connecting international flight. Should I spend the night in Pretoria and tour there or in Joburg? Any particular part of either town a must-see?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry I didn't read some of the previous posts before asking my question. Let me add that we arrive at 7pm, on a Thursday night and depart the next day at about the same time.

Thanks Again.

hi there.

i would stay at the mondior concorde at emperors palace. it is great for kids with the rides, games, etc. also, you have many restaurants to choose from. it is four minutes from the airport by shuttle. my wife and kids and me killed 24 hours there two months ago with ease.

the apartheid history tour is probably good if the kids are old enough. i am an agent and will admit you can probably book the tour cheaper with the hotel but the hotel cheaper with an agent.
