A skyscraper-strewn metropolis built on the largest gold reserves in the world, Johannesburg’s tantalising mix of ethnicity and religion converge with unique results. Jewish synagogues sit near Greek Orthodox churches and Ethiopian coffee shops pop up next to Argentinian steakhouses. The people that live here are the portrait of this urban jungle. It’s in Jozi, as the locals call it, that you’ll get a pulsating Pan-African experience. There are unscripted discoveries at every turn, which is why true city lovers always find themselves coming back for more.
Hooking you with energy and optimism, Johannesburg’s forward-looking locals are always keen for playful reinvention. Look further than what is obvious – the highways, heavy traffic and shiny shopping malls – and you’ll discover soulful spirit and village-like atmosphere everywhere from Soweto’s burgeoning township to Victoria Yard’s garden-fresh urban farm. You’ll find Afro-beat block parties and blazing braais alongside fine dining restaurants and decadent jazz nights. The beauty of this wild child city lies in its differences, which are celebrated like precious gems.
