Johannesburg, the glittering city of gold, has become everybody’s darling in the past few months. Joburg is South Africa’s brashest, boldest city with a zing and vibrancy well worth exploring. It’s a hip and happening place with excellent theatres, live music venues and great markets too.
The city was founded in 1886 after a gold reef was discovered. Some attractive yellow mine dumps are still visible.
Revitalisation schemes have created great pockets of culture with cafes, museums, markets and inner city living. It’s also one of the greenest cities in the world, and the suburbs turn glorious purple in November when avenues of jacaranda trees bloom.
So, if you are travelling in Southern Africa, make sure Johannesburg is on your list of places to visit. For other spectacular destinations in South Africa and the world, or for more information about Johannesburg visit our destinations page.
