Gauteng Business Travel Guide - - GAUTENG - Writer: Phoebe Calver Project Man­ager: Joe Pal­liser

The prov­ince of Gaut­eng is the beat­ing heart of South Africa - as well as the well oiled eco­nomic en­gine of Africa - and with the coun­try’s largest and per­haps most dy­namic city, Johannesburg at its cen­tre, it is be­com­ing ever more pop­u­lar.

With the im­pres­sive re­birth of Johannesburg, the prov­ince is be­com­ing a cul­tur­ally dy­namic epi­cen­tre. Hav­ing once been con­sid­ered a place to avoid, now it is one of the most in­spir­ing me­trop­o­lises in the world and the per­fect hot-spot for busi­ness travel.

It is likely that you will spend a lot of your work­ing hours in Johannesburg, how­ever, there are plenty of spec­tac­u­lar sights to ex­plore in your free time slightly fur­ther afield. Pre­to­ria is a short drive out to the north and will pro­vide you with the per­fect respite from busy Joberg. As South Africa’s ad­min­is­tra­tive cap­i­tal Pre­to­ria will pro­vide a slightly grander ex­pe­ri­ence, with a plethora of stately build­ings and mu­se­ums to wind away your hours.

A busi­ness trip in Gaut­eng pro­vides the per­fect set­ting, with the prov­ince

be­ing South Africa’s cen­tre for both the in­dus­trial and com­merce sec­tors, sub­se­quently be­ing very well con­nected. Gaut­eng is con­sid­ered the gate­way to South­ern Africa, with the ma­jor­ity of des­ti­na­tions eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by ei­ther a short flight or drive.

De­spite the fact that Gaut­eng is the small­est prov­ince in South Africa mak­ing up only 1.5 per­cent of the land area - it is one of the most ur­banised ar­eas, con­tain­ing the coun­try’s largest city and there­fore an end­less ar­ray of op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­plo­ration in this re­ju­ve­nated area dur­ing your trav­els.
