The city is often described as Africa’s economic powerhouse, and as a modern and prosperous new age in African cities. With the Johannesburg city skyline having most of the tallest buildings on the continent and contains the hearts of many international organizations. The mix of cultures, cuisines and activities will have even the most small-town visitor embracing life in the concrete jungle.

Step into the most exclusive parties in South Africa before heading back to your five star hotel suite for some pampering. Shop till you drop in the city centers, with everything from discount fashion labels to upmarket boutiques. This is a region that brought in 40% of the world’s gold deposits, so one can naturally expect the area to hold bountiful riches.

A mere 60km from Johannesburg lies the Kloof Gold Mine. It has produced more than 70 million ounces of gold since the first hole was drilled and was, in its heyday, known as the richest gold mine in the world. Just West of the city lies another mine, the AngloGold Ashanti’s Mponeng gold mine is seen as the world’s deepest, reaching a total of 3.9km into the earth’s crust. These are huge achievements in the industrial era and hold a riveting history, with money hungry people rushing to South Africa’s shore trying to grab their share of the wealth. People still do, but now it’s for the other forms of wealth the region holds. Its people, its success and its vibrant lifestyle.
