What To Expect

Johannesburg is situated on the Witwatersrand (white waters ridge') - a series of hills that form the continental watershed. Rain that falls on the city flows either southwards from this ridge to eventually reach the Orange River and Atlantic Ocean, or northwards to reach the Limpopo River and Indian Ocean. It boasts some incredible heritage sites related to the struggle against apartheid, many of which have been developed into world-class museums.

Two of the 20th century's most famous liberation heroes first started their legal careers and then their political careers in Johannesburg. Mahatma Gandhi with the Passive Resistance or 'Satyagraha' movement in 1906 and Nelson Mandela with the Defiance Campaign in 1952. You can trace some of their footsteps between Chancellor House and Gandhi Square in the city center.

Johannesburg has an incredibly electric and energetic vibe. It is the "New York of Africa" with a massive mix of people from all over Africa and the world living here. Joburg is an incredibly creative city and this is most notable around the trendy inner-city precincts of Braamfontein, Maboneng and Newtown. The suburbs of Johannesburg form a series of interlinked villages, each with its own village-street and unique character. Parkhurst, Melville, Parkview, Parktown North and Greenside are some of the city's most popular villages.
