The commercial heart of the country
The principal cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria make Gauteng the commercial, industrial and administrative heart of South Africa and an important powerhouse for the whole of Southern Africa. Linked by a high-speed train, The Gautrain, these 2 cities are on each otherâ€™s doorstep.
Johannesburg is the major international gateway to South Africa. This vibrant and dynamic city has a throbbing pulse and an awesome sense of rhythm.
Johannesburg and surrounding suburbs boast superb hotels, restaurants, cultural attractions, world-class golf courses and shopping centres.
Rich in History, Soweto is synonymous with this resilient communityâ€™s liberation struggle and today tourists can visit famous landmarks, sample traditional cuisine and interact with the entrepreneurs who keep this city alive. Known as the Jacaranda City, the Political Capital, Pretoria has a long and fascinating history. The cityâ€™s central feature, Church Square, remains dominated by a huge bronze statue of Paul Kruger, regarded as the father of Afrikaanerdom.
