Holiday In & Around Gauteng and Johannesburg

Where To Stay & What To Do

Travel from the Cradle of Humankind to the purple roadways of Jacaranda City, and from the shopping of Sandton to the vibrant streets of Soweto, the province of Gauteng and its capital, Johannesburg, is one of contrast and discovery.

At the heart of Gauteng province is Johannesburg, a sprawling megacity that stretches out from the CBD to include distinct suburbs, towns and regions that form part of the Greater Johannesburg area. If you’re an international visitor flying into South Africa then you’ll likely be starting your Gauteng holiday at O.R. Tambo International Airport, the country’s busiest link to the rest of the world and a modern welcome to South Africa. Jump on the Gautrain rapid public transport system and you can get to central Johannesburg and other key Gauteng locations in an hour or less.

The size and diversity of Joburg and its neighbourhoods can make it a challenge to plan a Johannesburg holiday for first time visitors. Depending on what you want to see and do in Gauteng choosing the right suburb or town to stay in can make a big difference.
