Introducing Johannesburg

Johannesburg is South Africa’s second largest city and it is also the capital of South Africa’s Gauteng Province, with a population of more than 3 million people. Bursting with life and soul, this busy metropolis is home to important Apartheid history as well as an entire square dedicated to Nelson Mandela. Often referred to as “Joburg” or “Jozi” by the locals, Johannesburg is a city that boasts amazing designer shopping for all those retail therapy addicts, a huge choice of restaurants which includes a mix of international and African cuisine, plus amazing nightlife and some of the continent’s biggest and best casinos; but above all else, it’s simply a place of historical significance. So whether you’re here to enjoy amazing shopping and entertainment or something culturally immersive such as food, music and art; the sad, harrowing history of this city will always be a reminder of how far the country of South Africa has come.
