Johannesburg is the capital of Gauteng State, the wealthiest province in South Africa. Gauteng in not only the wealthiest province in South Africa, contributing to 33% of the GDP of the country, but the economy of Gauteng alone contributes to 10% of the GDP of the whole of Africa. Perhaps this is the reason why this vibrant city is known by different names like Jozi and Egoli where Egoli means ‘City of Gold’. Being the economic capital, there is no doubt that there will be a number of places to accommodate tourists, ranging from 5 stars to cheap hotels since people visit Johannesburg from all parts of the world and from all walks of life – from wealthy businessman to curious tourist – looking to see if there are still lions roaming the streets. Sadly, this is not the case any more, all the lions in Johannesburg are safely ensconced in the Zoo or in the Lion Park which is situated just outside Johannesburg and is a worthwhile attraction to go and see!
