Johannesburg (or Egoli in Zulu, which means "city of gold"), is the most populous city in South Africa. It is a city of contrasts, townships and poor housing are adjacent to residential areas and luxurious shopping centers. A visit to the very interesting Apartheid museum to better understand the tumultuous past of the rainbow nation. The famous township of Soweto home to the Hector Pieterson Museum and Vikalazi Street, street where two Nobel Peace Prize lived : Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela. Nicknamed "Joburg" or "Jozi" by South Africans, the city is a good starting point to visit the surrounding areas of Limpopo, Mpumalanga and North West.
