486 Things To Do in Gauteng

Gauteng, the place where gold was discovered, is the commercial and industrial powerhouse of South Africa and indeed the whole of southern Africa. It might be the smallest of the nine provinces, but is also the wealthiest, and entertainment is high on its list of priorities – people here work and play hard. The highveld is a heady mix of energy, diversity and enviable weather and activities and an eclectic nightlife are anything but hard to find. In Johannesburg, Gold Reef City, numerous markets, Soweto, theatres and restaurants provide a constant source of distraction, whilst the Magaliesberg, Sun City, Pretoria, and the Pilanesberg are all on your doorstep.
