Johannesburg – South Africa’s Golden City
Johannesburg is the business capital of South Africa and the economic powerhouse of Africa. It produces a large proportion of the country’s GDP and attracts investment and skills from all over the world. It is without a doubt the most cosmopolitan city in South Africa with people from all over the continent and the rest of the world. With a population of about 8 million in the greater metropolis, the city has expanded and now virtually connects to Pretoria, South Africa’s administrative capital. It is the provincial capital of Gauteng, South Africa’s wealthiest province and is the only real global city in sub-Saharan Africa.
Johannesburg is also one of Africa’s main travel hubs and an inevitable access point to many Southern African destinations.
The city was formed in the 1880s after gold and diamonds were discovered on the Witwatersrand. This gold rush led to numerous people flocking to the area in search of riches and labour and the settlement quickly expanded to become the largest in the country. The locals refer to it as Egoli – City of Gold in the Zulu language. Mining is still a major part of the industry around ‘Joburg/Jozi’ but business and information technology are now leading the way.
Mention the word Mauritius, and travellers picture a palm-fringed oasis in the Indian Ocean, while those who have been here heave a sigh of contentment. The stereotype rings true and despite its immense popularity, the island still provides a beach holiday that dreams are made of! Whether you explore the north, south, east or west coasts, you will be awed by beautiful beaches, coral reefs, tropical rainforests, and pampered in accommodation of the highest calibre.
Mauritius has a number of destinations, each offering a unique experience. Many travellers head north to Grand Baie, a seaside village and large beautiful bay that’s popular with tourists. The west coast is sheltered with calm waters while the east coast is rougher with a rocky coastline. The south is the least developed with more stretches of wild nature and offers a secluded getaway.
