Living in Johannesburg

Also known as ‘Egoli’ or‘The City of Gold’; Johannesburg was originally established due to its proximity to a large gold mine located along the Witwaterstrand. Today, Johannesburg is the biggest city in South Africa and is classified as the country’s economic centre.

Big and bustling, Johannesburg is home to the Constitutional Court, the world’s largest man-made forest and some of the country’s most valuable and coveted property.
