Gauteng Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences


  • Experience the culture of Gauteng while on all South African tours.

Gauteng is a South African province located in the heart of the Highveld. Sharing borders with Limpopo, Mpumalanga, the Free State and the North West, Gauteng is the only landlocked province without an international border on South Africa tours.

Despite being the smallest province in South Africa, Gauteng is very urbanized and also hosts the largest population. This is perhaps due to the fact that two of South Africa’s major cities, Pretoria and Johannesburg, are found there. Pretoria is the executive and administrative capital, as well as the de facto national capital of South Africa. It is very laidback and offers a slower pace of life. Pretoria is also very pretty, being nicknamed the “Jacaranda City” due to over 50,000 jacaranda plants that line the streets.

Johannesburg or Jo’burg as it is known to locals, is much busier and is the largest city in South Africa. Despite not being a capital, Johannesburg is one of the world’s youngest cities and is considered the powerhouse of the African continent.

It is true that Gauteng is known for its modern cities, but outside of Johannesburg is an area known as the Cradle of Humankind. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, a large number of human ancestry fossil finds have been made there thus highlighting the very long history of the African continent.

The gateway to South Africa, Gauteng is an exciting destination rich in history and culture  on South African tours.
