Travel was easy in East Rand.
The East Rand consists of a number of cities and towns lying east of Johannesburg and incorporated into the greater Johannesburg metropolitan district. The towns are a mix of upmarket and working class residential suburbs beside large industrial parks.
Most of the East Rand towns were formed in the 1880s during the gold rush period and many of the homes built to accommodate miners and their families.
The area is booming and a great deal of emphasis has been placed on convenience for its residents with an excellent road network, sprawling parks and lakes and a generous sprinkling of churches, malls, schools, clubs and sporting grounds.
Johannesburg’s international airport is located within the East Rand boundaries, making a stay on the East Rand an ideal option for both business and leisure travellers.
