Gauteng - Johannesburg Metro

Johannesburg Travel Directory

General Information

The Johannesburg Metro lies in the heart of Gauteng in South Africa.  Gold was discovered in this region on the Witwatersrand by Australian prospector George Harrison.  Greater Johannesburg's growth was largely based from the beginning on the discovery of gold.

Johannesburg Metro is the region with the highest population in South Africa, with almost eight million people living in an area no more than 60km in any direction.  It is a contrast of high-rise glass and chrome corporate headquarters and third world tin shacks. 

The central area runs the length of the gold-bearing reef from east to west. From Johannesburg, it is no more than three hours by road to anywhere in the province, and the roads become wonderful viewpoints for the crossover of European and African histories.
