West Rand Travel Directory

General Information

Despite being a separate municipal area, like the East Rand, the West Rand is included in the Greater Johannesburg metropolitan area. Nowhere else in Gauteng will you find as many natural wonders as you will in the West. Sanctuaries, wildlife reserves, conservancies and dams mingle with modernity and suburban development.
