JOHANNESBURG

OVERVIEW

Johannesburg – known as the megacity of South Africa, ‘Jozi’ or ‘Jo’burg’, the city of gold or ‘egoli’, one of the 100 largest urban areas in the world, houses some of the head offices of major South African companies and banks which attracts professionals from all over Africa. Being the largest city in Gauteng, and the most populated it is no wonder that Johannesburg is home to our South African Constitutional Court as well as the rich in minerals ‘Witswaterstrand’ – home to one of our world-class universities too.

Look forward to one of the most famous township experiences when you visit Soweto, a township rife in Apartheid history. Not only did some of our most iconic freedom fighters live here, but it is where the 1976 Soweto uprising occurred. Visit world renowned museums which take you back to not only the history of the area but some of the most influential periods of South African history. It is also in Johannesburg where you will find a vibe that suits yours. Township events which allow you to witness the unique and diverse culture of our people, to international artists performing live on our stages, to the widest variety of clubs, bars and restaurants to choose from. Whether you’re single and looking to make memories, a business traveler looking to network or a family person, the city of Johannesburg promises quality experiences that will keep you coming back.
