Gauteng

Gauteng was established in 1994 and is South Africa’s smallest but most urbanised and economically powerful province. Gauteng means ‘Place of Gold’ in Sesotho – one of South Africa’s 11 languages. Since the discoveries of gold in 1886 and of the world’s largest diamond in Cullinan in the Metsweding district in 1905, the province has developed into an economic powerhouse and contributes more than 33 percent of South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP), and ten percent of the GDP of the entire African continent.Gauteng is divided into six regions – Tshwane (Pretoria), Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni (the East Rand), the West Rand (Mogale City and Magaliesberg), Metsweding (Cullinan) and Sedibeng (Vaal). All offer an exciting array of historical, cultural and natural attractions. Africa’s most modern international airport is situated in Ekurhuleni – firmly establishing the region as the gateway to the continent.The province has a pleasant summer climate of warm and thundery days. Winters are crisp and dry. Late spring and early autumn are the best months to visit, but the weather year – round is good, with an average of nine hours sunshine per day.A vibrant, lively mix of energy and diversity, Gauteng is renowned for being South Africa’s entertainment epi-centre. Gauteng is a unique fusion of democratic and traditional values. So take time to peel away perceptions of business suits and briefcases and discover there is more depth to Gauteng than meets the eye.
