Gauteng is a province that defies description; sprawling, big smoke and charismatic are words used to label what is indeed an indefinable destination. It’s a place of contradictions; mega wealth and extreme poverty, sophistication and suburbia. It’s alive with opportunity, vivid and intoxicating. And is way too interesting for merely a stopover!
From the west rand to the east rand, to the leafy avenues of the northern suburbs, to the explosive energy of Sandton and onwards to the Cradle of Humankind, it’s a destination, when given a chance, will grab you by the heartstrings and hold you in its thrall.
Johannesburg, the megalopolis is fashionable, cultural and stylish. Restaurants and clubs operate 24/7. Music, from Kwaito to hip hop pulsates across the multi-cultural bars in Soweto and Sandton; the weather is superb, the fashion eclectic and the abundant parks provide green spaces to unwind and take in big gulps of fresh air.
