About Randburg, South Africa
Randburg is a city in north-west Johannesburg in the South African province of Gauteng. Randburg was established as a town in 1959, resulting from the merger of 32 Johannesburg suburbs. The name derives from the South African currency and was selected in a competition. Randburg residents tend to be wealthier than those of Johannesburg, and the city was dominated by the National Party during the apartheid era.
Rent a car in Randburg and you are just a 10km drive from the centre of Johannesburg. If you want to travel further afield, Pretoria is just 53km from Randburg. Make the most of your car rental to explore the fascinating, fast-paced world of Johannesburg and the handsome, jacaranda-lined streets of Pretoria.
Randburg is right in the heart of Gauteng, a vibrant province of stark contrasts. Gauteng comprises only 1.5% of South Africa's land mass but a whopping 34% of its GDP and an astounding 10% of the GDP of the entire continent. Swing from the relaxed atmosphere of Pretoria (South Africa's administrative capital) to the frenetic pace of Johannesburg, a clash of exclusive suburbs and extreme poverty.
