Johannesburg at a glance

Johannesburg is the capital of Gauteng. Called Joburg by the locals and nicknamed "egoli" (place of gold), Johannesburg dates back to 1886 when the main gold reef was discovered on the Witwatersrand. Almost immediately, the Transvaal (as it was known then) was swamped by diggers and fortune-seekers from near and far, creating a property boom in the area.

Mine dumps stand firmly as symbols of its rich past, while modern architecture in the form of tall skyscrapers contrast with Indian bazaars, rural dwellings and African 'muti' (medicine) shops, where traditional healers (or sangomas) dispense advice and traditional medicine. The busy streets bustle with fruit sellers and street vendors.

An exciting blend of ethnic and Western art and cultural activities is reflected in theatres and open-air arenas, throughout the city.

Johannesburg offers a wide variety of real estate opportunities in the form of sales and rental: including security villages, apartments, houses, cluster developments, vacant land and guesthouses.
