Johannesburg, South Africa

The largest city in South Africa, Johannesburg is the intriguing, dynamic heart of this turbulent country. This city will help you understand and get a feel for the real South Africa. It’s a city of astonishing contrasts, a huge metropolis where abundant wealth and desperate poverty live side by side.

Locals affectionately call it Jo’burg, Jozi or eGoli (‘the city of gold’). The reality is that Johannesburg is a fast-growing, city yet, it’s got wealth, and a beautiful climate. If you use some common sense and mix it with some advice from the locals, you can enjoy Joburg to its maximum.
