Get to know Johannesburg
Johannesburg is known by various names just as diverse as the residents - Jozi, Jo’burg, Joeys, eGoli. From its humble beginning as a mining town, Johannesburg has evolved into a buzzing urban hub of activity. From high rises dotting the skyline to leafy suburbs with sprawling properties, the city reflects the history of its growth and major events in Southern African history.
