WELCOME TO JOHANNESBURG

Founded above the world’s richest gold deposits in 1886, Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city and main economic hub. The vibrant social fulcrum of the country’s most culturally integrated and forward-looking province, it is also renowned throughout Africa as a shoppers’ paradise. Visitors from further afield won’t regret making the effort to explore the Apartheid Museum and the exhaustive selection of photographs, old newsreels and other imaginative displays documenting the rise and fall of the system of institutionalised racism for which it is named.

Johannesburg is the perfect gateway city to explore from. It’s within a few hours’ self-drive routes to some of South Africa’s best wildlife gems, including the Kruger National Park, Madikwe and Pilanseberg (to name a few). Collect your 4×4 and explore from there.
