Johannesburg
is located in the central Gauteng province of North of South Africa.

This sprawling city is the commercial engine room for the whole region, a vast and sprawling city of over eight million people, vibrant, innovative and cosmopolitan, unattractive, disjointed and crime-ridden.

Founded in 1886 when an Auzzie prospector discovered what turned out to be the world's largest gold seam, Johannesburg started life in a frenetic scramble for lucre. The town developed in haphazard fashion, with various suburbs evolving on racially divided basis. Since the end of apartheid these racial divisions have blurred slightly, with a fast-growing black middle class, but divisions between rich and poor remain stark.

Most safari travellers try to get in and out of Johannesburg as quickly as possible, but there are some very interesting palaeontological sites at The Cradle of Mankind, as well as the usual museums and galleries.
