Johannesburg is the second largest city in Africa, with more than 3 million people calling this bustling metropolis home. The city was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm. There are 11 official languages in South Africa, all of which are spoken in Johannesburg, so the mix of people and culture makes this city a unique and diverse destination. Joburg, or Jozi as some locals call it, is an incredibly friendly, unstuffy city and there’s a lot to see here, from sobering reminders of the country’s recent past to the progressive streets of Melville and Soweto. The energy of this city will blow you away. Visit Joburg Tourism to read more.
