Gauteng

night-leapard-drive-kruger

Gauteng is, by far, South Africa’s busiest province – the hustle and bustle can be felt all around you. And although big business is one of the main attractions, it’s definitely not all the province has going for it. Our personal favourite: it’s close proximity to the Kruger National Park, home to the famous Big Five.

In Johannesburg, the nightlife is excellent, with many of the countries classiest bars, restaurants and clubs dotted all over the city. Not to mention that it’s also a shoppers heaven, with malls offering international designers as well as local fashion.

Also known as the Jacaranda City, for all the purple-blossomed trees, Pretoria is a peacefully quiet city. With a long and fascinating history, you can expect to see many old, yet beautiful buildings and monuments.
