Trip Planner Africa  /  South Africa  /  Gauteng

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. Gauteng is in South Africa.
