Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, and one of the largest urban areas in the world. It is South Africa’s chief industrial and financial metropolis. Johannesburg, or Jozi or Jo’Burg, as it is sometimes called, was founded in 1886, after gold was discovered on a farm in the area. Initially part of the independent Afrikaner republic, the Transvaal, it is today the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest of South Africa’s nine provinces. Johannesburg is situated on the Highveld, the broad plateau that sweeps across the South African interior. It grew on the edge of the Witwatersrand Main Reef – a subterranean gold-bearing deposit that goes for hundreds of miles beneath the Highveld. Johannesburg has a temperate climate, enjoying about eight hours of sunlight per day in both winter and summer. Average summer temperatures are about 24 degrees Celsius, and average winter temperatures are about 13 degrees Celsius. The city can be prone to droughts, as average rainfall per year is quite low at 700 millimetres. Johannesburg has an urban population of over 5.7 million, and it is a genuine racial and linguistic melting pot, counting blacks, whites, coloureds and Asians among its population. There are over 10 languages spoken on a regular basis in Johannesburg. It is the commercial and financial heart of South Africa, being a centre of mining, manufacturing and finance. It produces 16% of South Africa’s GDP. All the mining houses, as well as the Chamber of Mines, are headquartered in the city. Practically all the banks, insurance companies and building societies in South Africa have their head offices in the city. The Johannesburg Stock Exchange lists more than 600 companies. The city equally boasts a rich, multi-faceted cultural life.

Although the city is not a standard touristic destination, it nonetheless serves as a connecting point to major touristic destinations in South Africa. Visits to the Apartheid Museum, as well as former townships, generate a lot of interest. The city is also fitted with an observation deck located at Carlton Centre in the Central Business District. There are several malls in Johannesburg, as well as theme parks and amusement parks. As far as landmarks go, the Cradle of Humankind is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The Lesedi Cultural Village is another popular attraction. Johannesburg offers various wildlife viewing options, with the Johannesburg Zoo being one of the largest in the country. The Lion Park nature serve houses over 80 lions, and 1500 hectares Krugersdorp Nature Reserve is a forty-minute drive from the city centre Johannesburg is served principally by the OR Tumbo International Airport for both domestic and international flights. It shares a network of Metropolitan routes with Krugersdorp and Ekurhuleni.

Johannesburg has a well-developed higher education system of both private and public universities, as well as several private colleges. It is also home to an award-winning film school. The city is home to higher education institutions like the University of Witwatersrand, Monash South Africa, and the University of Johannesburg. As an alpha global city, Johannesburg offers a wealth of experience that could prove useful to students willing to further their education in a metropolis.

As one of the youngest world major cities, Johannesburg has nonetheless experienced a vast amount of change. While it is the beating heart of South Africa, it has overcome over 20 years of decay and decline to become the rapidly changing, ever-evolving city it now is. The city centre is currently smarting up, with loft apartments and office developments being erected at a steady pace. Maboneng is considered one of the most successful urban-renewal projects in the world. The cost of living in the city is just over 8000 rands for a single person per month, without rent.
