The capital of South Africa is Pretoria (PTA), which is located in the smallest province being Gauteng. Also in Gauteng is Johannesburg (JHB), the economic powerhouse of Africa, with its ever-growing suburban sprawl creeping outwards from the central city skyscrapers and ring-road motorways.
JHB’s more than 11-million inhabitants live fast and have a restless spirit, which they have imparted into the fabric of the city, also known by its African name as Egoli, ‘the place of gold’. The development of the city, which is just over a century old, has followed the fortunes of the Witwatersrand (White Water Reef), the rich gold-bearing rock reef that stretches across this area of central South Africa. The initial gold rush started in the 1880s, and barely ten years later JHB had become South Africa’s largest town and the site of frenzied development that has been ongoing ever since. JHB today is a city of contrasts, with glass-paned modern luxury high-rise buildings towering besides a few remaining dilapidated Victorian buildings, and affluent northern suburbs filled with stunning private homes.
Most visitors to South Africa, particularly those intent on exploring the game reserves of Mpumalanga, arrive at Johannesburg’s busy Oliver Tambo International Airport, which is the main point of entry for the country. A few days in JHB can be filled by some entertaining attractions in and around the city before heading off to the game parks of the Northern and Eastern provinces, or indeed the magnificent coastlines that culminate at Africa’s most Southern point, Cape Agulhas and the majesty of Cape Town and Table Mountain.
