Get to know Johannesburg

Also known as Jo’burg or Jozi among the locals, Johannesburg’s first epithet was eGoli, or City of Gold, due to the large gold and mineral deposits on the Witwatersrand that spurred a massive gold rush some 130 years ago. A young and sprawling city, Johannesburg is the world’s largest man-made forest, with lush greenery to be seen in every direction. Not only South Africa’s cultural hub, but the sporting capital of Africa, as it has hosted both the Rugby and Soccer World cups, introducing the Vuvuzela to the world.
