Gauteng

Trip Planner Africa  /  South Africa  /  Gauteng
On a trip to Gauteng, you'll witness the golden roots of South Africa, and the World Heritage-listed Cradle of Humankind. The region's name means "place of gold" in the Sesotho language, and dates from the beginnings of the gold industry in Johannesburg in 1886. Mine tours tell the tale of this booming era, while today the region encompasses tall skyscrapers, Indian markets, and African medicine lodges. Topping most Gauteng itineraries, bustling Jo'burg contends with the fascinating valley revealing the origins of human civilization. Enrich your trip with tranquil nature reserves and museums tracing South Africa's complex heritage.
