Welcome to Gauteng

Welcome to the big city region, the place where the vibe doesn’t stop, business never sleeps and neither does the party.

It’s the financial hub of South Africa with the Sandton city skyscraper buildings lighting up the sky by night and welcoming people from every corner to join in the hustle.

It’s where no matter what lifestyle you choose to lead, there’s something for everyone. Where you can stand in the steps of giants who came before us and travel back into time at the homes of Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, while being surrounded by the colourful, vibrant and soul awakening township area of Soweto.

It’s a cosmopolitan home of fun, warm and unique people who come together to make all visitors feel welcome.
