Johannesburg, also known as 'The City of Gold' or 'Jozi', is the largest city in South Africa. It serves as a wonderful stopover for travellers exploring the wonders of the country.

The city consists of multiple urban centres connected by sprawling neighbourhoods over a massive area. From a high vantage point, the lush forested environment of Johannesburg becomes clear, providing a sense of an urban forest.

Johannesburg and its surrounds are rich with historic, cultural, and social significance dating back to antiquity and even pre-history. Over the years,  an abundance of peoples from a great diversity of heritages, including, the indigenous Khoi, African Bantu, European, Asian, and more have shaped the abundance of the city.

Johannesburg is a wonderful city to visit and has much to offer to any curious or weary traveller.
