Make A Holiday Rental House in Gauteng, South Africa Your Home Away From Home

 

In the heart of South Africa lies the Gauteng Province, which incorporates the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria. A Gauteng holiday offers the opportunity to indulge in cultural activities as well as a vast variety of exciting outdoor activities. A Gauteng holiday rental house offers all of the comforts of home, spectacular views of the area and easy access to all of the things to see and do in this vibrant province.

The adventurous will also love the opportunity to take to the sky in a hot-air balloon or helicopter, rock climb, go-karting or explore various nature reserves.

For those who love a bit of culture and history, a Gauteng holiday also has a lot to offer. There is the Apartheid Museum which is a powerful look at the turbulent rise and fall of the Apartheid Movement.

Also worth a visit on the outskirts of Johannesburg is the World Heritage Site, The Cradle of Humankind.
