History
The city of Johannesburg was historically occupied by native tribes in the earlier centuries before first settlers who arrived in the 1800s. There is also scientific evidence that people of the Stone age, such as the San and Khoi people, lived in the area before settlers. This is further supported by the World Heritage site, called the Cradle of Humankind in Sterkfontein near Johannesburg.
 
Johannesburg is an unofficial city of South Africa, it has the largest population and economy and holds the status of being the world’s largest city that is not surrounded by river, sea or lake! Also known as the City of Gold or Egoli by the locals, Johannesburg became the hub of gold mining when gold was discovered in mid-1886. People from all over South Africa and the world flocked to the area, thus creating a space for business and industry. Today Johannesburg is a thriving metropolitan city, filled with culture, business and natural wonder.
