About Johannesburg

Vibrant, exciting Johannesburg, the provincial capital of Gauteng offers visitors a large selection of recreational, cultural and historical attractions. The history of Johannesburg extends back to 1886 when George Harrison discovered gold on the farm Langlaagte. Gold Diggers and fortune hunters arrived in droves and soon a tent town had sprung up, which later became the city that is now South Africa's main commercial centre.

Having visited Johannesburg on numerous occasions we at www.southafricatravel.co.uk believe that although perhaps you would not wish to have this as your holiday base, it is the ideal stopover location to visit the main safari routes. It is for this reason that we have put together a small but luxurious selection of hotels in Johannesburg suburbs which we feel will offer safety and time to recover in equal measure from your journey and head off on your Safari exploration!
