About Jo'burg

Affectionately known as eGoli (the city of gold), Jo'burg was discovered as a mining town in the 1800s and emerged into one of Africa’s foremost business capitals, bustling with a wide range of industrial activities. Jo'burg is not only South Africa’s largest city but has also been dubbed as the world’s largest man-made forest with over 10 million trees. As a popular travel destination, Jo'burg is a stone throw away from South Africa’s administrative capital, The City of Tshwane and your gateway to South Africa’s northern provinces - Gauteng, North West, Mpumalanga and Limpopo.
