Johannesburg & Pretoria - the heart of South Africa
Gauteng, with its two major cities Johannesburg and Pretoria, is the powerhouse of the Republic of South African as well as of Southern Africa. Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport is by far the biggest one in the region, the GDP of Joburg makes about 20% of the national GDP.
Pretoria, Joburg's little sister, is smaller (in almost any case), but not less lively. Being the administrative capital of South Africa and hosting most embassies, consulates etc. Pretoria evolved its own charme. Pretoria is only about a 45min drive from the airport, which makes the Jacaranda City the ideal "point of entry" when you are coming to Southern Africa.
