elcome to Johannesburg, Africa’s most visited city
since 2013, according to the MasterCard Global
Destination Cities’ Index.

Home to 5.7 million people, Joburg is growing at an
unprecedented rate – constantly and continuously transforming
itself. This vibrant metropolis is the financial, commercial
and industrial hub of South Africa. A phenomenal economic
powerhouse, Joburg traces its origins to the heydays of the
world’s largest and richest gold rush ever witnessed, earning it
the nickname 'Egoli or 'place of gold.'
A versatile business and mega-events destination, Johannesburg
is capable of handling a vast array of events, from small meetings
to massive international gatherings, congresses, conventions,
concerts, sports tournaments and mega-events.

HOW TO GET TO JOBURG

Joburg is geographically centrally located in
South Africa.
AIRPORT The OR Tambo International
Airport (ORTIA) in Johannesburg is the air
transport hub of Southern Africa, catering
for more than 17 million passengers
each year. It is about 30 km from the city,
servicing over 55 international airlines and
numerous domestic airlines.
HIGH SPEED RAIL The Gautrain speed
train service travels at a maximum speed of

10

180 kilometres per hour linking the airport
to various areas of Johannesburg in just 12
minutes.
BUSES The Rea Vaya bus route covers
a distance of over 120km and serves as a
feeder system to the Gautrain. The bright
red buses offer fast and affordable public
transport throughout the city.
TAXIS Johannesburg has two types of
taxis, metered taxis and minibus taxis.
Unlike other cities, metered taxis don’t

normally drive around the city looking for
passengers, they need to be called for a
pick up. Minibus taxis are largely used by
locals to commute between residential
areas and places of work.
THE SIGHTSEEING BUS As with all City
Sightseeing tours, Johannesburg operates
on the world renowned and hugely popular
Hop-On,Hop-Off, system which allows sight
seers the chance to get on and off the bus
at any of the 12 designated stops along the
route.
