Johannesburg, South Africa

Johannesburg, or more commonly referred to as 'Jo'burg', 'Jozi', or 'Joey's, is the largest and wealthiest city in South Africa. The cultural, financial and business heart of Africa, Johannesburg offers a rhythmic and pulsating beat not experienced anywhere else in the country. If Cape Town is the heart of South Africa, Johannesburg is most definitely the pulse. If a fast-paced, professional atmosphere is what you seek, you will feel right at home in the City of Gold.

While not a capital city of South Africa, Johannesburg does house the Constitutional Court - South Africa's highest court. Johannesburg is also the largest city in the world not situated on a coastline or major river, and is home to some 3.2 million people.

The weather is Jo'burg is generally good, with hot temperatures in summer, and little or no wind. A rare but spectacular experience is the summer thunderstorms. In winter, temperatures can get bitterly cold, dropping to the single digits, but snow is rare.
