Johannesburg Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Johannesburg Overview

Jo'burg was founded on the hopes and dreams of the prospectors who came to the gold reef in search of fortune. The ‘City of Gold’ has come a long way since then to the bustling global metropolis it is today, hosting the FIFA World Cup and all. It has been the epicentre of the South Africa's tumultuous journey through the past century and a lot of scars are yet to be healed. But this young city has crossed over into the 21st century on a high note attracting people from across the globe, be it seekers of business or leisure. Jo'burg is the place to go to mix big-city culture, shopping, dining and nightlife with outdoor adventures, up-close wildlife encounters and visits to historical sites; just take all the required safety precautions.


The currency used is the South African Rand (ZAR), valued at approximately INR 6

Local Language

English, one of South Africa's 11 official languages, is the predominant language of government, business and the media, and can be understood by most people. The other principal tongues spoken in Johannesburg are the indigenous languages of isiZulu, Afrikaans, Setswana and SeSotho.
