Johannesburg is where the money is… and the action. It’s the most powerful commercial centre of the African continent. Cell phones are everywhere. You can send email from your hotel room, you can bank and exchange foreign currency, you can watch CNN, and should you fall ill, the hospitals have world-class equipment and doctors who can be trusted with a scalpel. Johannesburg is the capital of South Africa’s smallest – and richest – province, called Gauteng, a Sesotho name meaning “Place of Gold”.

The Palace of the Lost City in South Africa ranks as one of the world’s most extraordinary hotels. The centrepiece of the extraordinary Palace of the Lost City complex is a fairytale palatial residence, built with unbelievable attention to detail. The interior features exquisite mosaics, frescoes and hand-painted ceilings depicting South Africa’s wildlife and culture. Hard to believe that this is all located in a remote part of South Africa!
