Gauteng was initially established by prospectors who had come to South Africa to find fame and fortune and much of this spirit is still in evidence today. Gauteng or “The Place of Gold” as it is affectionately known is a province of great diversity, from its multicultural population to the rolling hills of the Magaliesberg.

The beauty of Gauteng, however, lies in its people. The province is alive, vibrant and a sense of optimism abounds. Experiencing the vibe of the vast urban landscape that is drenched in culture and abuzz with lively entertainment is simply part of the fare.

For those of you who are looking for the fast paced hustle and bustle of the city, Pretoria (South Africa’s capital) and Johannesburg (South Africa’s largest city) have everything one could ask for. Tourist attractions such as Gold Reef City, The Apartheid Museum and South Africa’s world famous township Soweto, are all a stone’s throw away from each other and offer visitors a day of excitement and relaxation. For people looking to get away from it all, Gauteng offers a wide array of Spa’s, Guest Houses and Hotels within some beautiful and tranquil settings. The Cradle of Humankind in the Magaliesberg is a World Heritage Site and is therefore a must see destination for all who visit this beautiful part of the country.
