Johannesburg is situated in Southern Transval, in the heart of the Witwatersrand region. The city, affectionately referred to by its inhabitants as Jo'burg, Jozi, Egoli or the "City of Gold" (in Zulu language), is located southwest of Pretoria.

Johannesburg was founded in 1886, following the discovery of gold deposits in the area around the city and is now the most populated and important city in South Africa.

Begin your visit with a tour of Lesedi, a multicultural village set amongst the pristine bushveld and rocky hills less than an hour's drive north of Johannesburg. Visit Soweto, the infamous former township from the Apartheid-era as well as the Apartheid Museum, which illustrates the rise and fall of apartheid in South Africa. Learn about the origins of Johannesburg and the South African mining experience on a tour of Gold Reef City.
