More info about Gauteng

South Africa has nine state provinces,  Gauteng is the smallest and wealthiest.

Gauteng is an extensive modern urban metropolis, the economic and commercial powerhouse of South Africa. The two main cities are Johannesburg, the capital of Gauteng, and Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa.

The huge modern megacity of Gauteng combines the suburbs of Johannesburg, the MidRand,  Pretoria,  the Reef towns of the East and West Rand, Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging,  and is now one of the world’s great urban destinations.

Gold was discovered on the highveld land of an Afrikaans farmer in 1886. The gold rush followed and thousands of people made their way to the Transvaal. A shanty town was built that was the beginning of Johannesburg.  South Africa became the biggest producer of gold in the world.

Johannesburg is the only city not built on a river or waterway, but on an underground seam of gold instead. Smaller mining towns sprang up around the golden arc of the Witwatersrand. There is the East and West Rand, towns like Kempton Park,  Benoni,  Florida,  Springs and Germiston. There are 32 in all.

Pretoria, the next largest city, was made capital of the Republic in 1860 and is the capital of the country. There are lovely historical buildings and museums to visit. The streets are lined with purple flowering jacaranda trees and there are gracious outlying suburbs with colourful gardens.

Climate

The climate is one of the best in the world. Summers are hot, with afternoon showers. Winters are cool, crisp, sunny and dry. It is seldom too hot or too cold so it is a great place to visit all year round.
