Come and discover Egoli “the city of gold” – Johannesburg. A city whose fortunes were founded on some of the richest gold deposits the world has ever seen. Locals often refer to it as Jozi. It is the largest city in South Africa and is a mix of contradictions from being a business powerhouse in areas such as Sandton to the famous townships of Soweto where Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu lived it is a city of contradictions. In recent years, the city centre has gone through an urban revival with the Newton Cultural Precinct offering many restaurants, art galleries and boutique stores which are worth spending a morning browsing.
Johannesburg is also one of the greenest cities in the World and many of its finest hotels can be found in the leafy suburbs of Parkton and Norwood. Visitors enjoy township tours of Soweto to learn about the history of Apartheid and see the house where Nelson Mandela lived.
The history of South Africa is bound with the history of Apartheid and a visit to the Apartheid Museum is integral in helping visitors understand the history and impact of the system of racial segregation which is still relevant globally today. It is also a place of hope showing how adversity was overcome and a better future built for all.
Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport is the regional airport hub for southern Africa and many visitors will pass through even when going to other countries in southern Africa. There are many daily flights to other major cities around the world.
