Oxford Road Hotel Near City Centre: Hyatt

By: Hyatt  11-11-2011

The area of Johannesburg began on a vast undulating grassy plain, interspersed with ridges and


(small hills) in an area known as the Witwatersrand; named after the white water springs that coursed the land. Beneath that rough but serene country was gold.

Since then, the city has grown and become the largest and most populous city in South Africa, and the largest city in the world not built on or near a major water source. It is home to Africa’s tallest building, a large CBD and many smaller urban centres. The road infrastructure, telecommunicationss, health care, shopping, visitor attractions, dining and nightlife are world class.

Joburg is lucky to have one of the world’s most pleasant climates, what is called a subtropical highland climate. The city enjoys a dry, sunny climate, with the exception of short late-afternoon downpours in the summer months of October to April, often accompanied by magnificent electric storms. Winter is, perhaps surprisingly, the sunniest time of the year, with mild days but chilly nights.

Magnificent trees have grown on what was grassland, creating the world’s largest urban forest with more than six million trees, and abundant birdlife.
