Greater Johannesburg Destinations

Greater Johannesburg

Johannesburg is the financial, economic and cultural giant of South Africa - and by implication the entire African continent. To put things in perspective, Jo'burg (or Jozi as often called) is the capital of Gauteng, South Africa's smallest province. Gauteng boasts the African continent's second-largest economy. Most international visitors stick to the city's affluent northern suburbs, home to gleaming shopping malls, international hotel chains and the head offices of the country's leading economic players. The northern suburbs, en masse, can appear as an endless sprawl of little more than tree-lined streets, high walls and satellite dishes. In reality, the north is a series of little villages, each defined by its high street and a distinct personality.
While Johannesburg may not be on your to do list, overnighting in the city may be required due to air schedules.
