The Highveld is South Africa’s central plateau. Some tourists arrive in hotels in the Highveld to pan for gold and tour the gold mines. They can also visit diamond-cutting works in the region. Others leave their Highveld hotels to visit the city of Johannesburg. Here they wander the art galleries, shop in the markets and Oriental Plaza and visit the Johannesburg Zoo. The cost can be prohibitive for those on a budget. Check with EasyToBook.com for Highveld cheap hotels and other accommodation solutions. If you remain in discount hotels, the Highveld region can be more affordable. You can then wander further afield, staying for more than a weekend. The Highveld can then show you Soweto and Gold Reef City.
Gold Reef City is a recreation of an old gold mining town. You can visit the old brewery, shops and other public buildings as well as the out of use mineshaft of the Crown Mines. Be sure to visit the Rhino Park, the Rondebult Bird Sanctuary, the Transvaal Snake Park and the tree-lined streets of Sandton.
