Welcome to Johannesburg
Built on the wealth of the gold beneath its streets, the remarkable city of Johannesburg mushroomed from nothing to a modern metropolis in just over a century. Travel to Johannesburg to discover the pot of gold in the ‘rainbow nation’ of South Africa. There are wonderful restaurants, fascinating township tours, fantastic shopping opportunities, and the chance of exciting excursions to such diverse attractions as glitzy casinos, game parks and prehistoric fossil fields. Johannesburg is the gateway to South Africa’s top game parks, and many who enter the country here would be well-advised to spend a few days holiday in Johannesburg to experience this vibrant city before or after they hit the bush. ‘Joburg’, as it is known, is also a great destination for a family holiday, offering plenty of fun attractions like a zoo, theme park and gold mine tours.
