The Afar Guide to

Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city. Variously known as Jozi, Jo’burg, or its Zulu name, Egoli (City of Gold), the place has attracted a myriad of cultures over the centuries, all drawn by the famed fortune that gave rise to this city. Visitors to Jozi in summer will find hot days with cooling afternoon showers. Winters are fantastic too, with bright, sunny days and chilly evenings. Activities from inner-city art walks to feasting on the local culinary dishes will keep any traveler entertained.
