About Johannesburg


‘What’s the word? Johannesburg!’ South Africa’s largest city and economic powerhouse has changed a lot since the soul-poet Gil Scot Heron sang this anti-apartheid anthem in 1976. Now even the infamous township of Soweto is considered a desirable place to live. Gourmets take note: Johannesburg is birthing a food culture that rivals neighbouring Cape Town.

Does any city have more nicknames? Try Jozi, Joburg, Joni, eGoli or Joeys for short.

Pop into the glorious Neighbourgoods Market for a slow brunch over a craft beer before picking up some fair-trade goodies. Contemporary African art thrives in nighttime Johannesburg, as does jazz and café culture in enclaves – tucked between and beyond the high-rise glass palaces and luxury residential buildings of downtown. And Johannesburg’s cocktail bars are as much testaments to renaissance of this city as its museums – enjoy a Cape Flat Colada over a kwalto beat, African house music, for a quintessential 'Rainbow Nation' moment.

Johannesburg is a true ‘urban jungle’. More than ten million trees have been planted in the city.
