Bucket List Experiences in Gauteng

Whether you’re visiting Gauteng for the first time, or you’ve lived here all your life, there’s always something new and exciting to do or see. It’s no coincidence that the province is home to the City of Gold. But Egoli is not the only gem in the province, which is home to many exciting attractions, including Carlton Centre, the tallest building in Africa, Constitution Hill and the Apartheid Museum at Gold Reef City, Johannesburg Zoo and Zoo Lake, and the many historic sites in Soweto.

The Gautrain is a relatively new invention for South Africans, as it is the first rapid rail network in Africa, linking Sandton with OR Tambo International Airport.

On the outskirts of the city, you will find the Vaal River, Vaal Dam, and Emerald Resort & Casino, and to the north, there’s the Cradle of Humankind with the Sterkfontein Caves and Maropeng. 

Apart from sightseeing, much adventure awaits those wishing to fulfill bucket list experiences in Gauteng.
