More info about Florida

The beautiful country of South Africa boasts stunning scenery and an unparalleled multicultural society. Its premier province Gauteng is a sought after destination with travellers impressed by its efficiency and first-class facilities - such as the magnificent OR Tambo International Airport, which has direct access to many ports throughout Africa. The West Rand of Gauteng has many exciting and famous tourist landmarks for visitors to explore.

This part of the country is blessed with picturesque scenery and is less commercialised than the other areas of the province. Top attractions here include the likes of the Hartebeespoort Dam, Elandsdrift, and the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains. Popular haunts and must-see activities can be found at the Cradle of Humankind, the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens, and the Roodepoort Museum. The colourful town of Florida is situated just 10km west of Johannesburg on the West Rand of Gauteng.

Florida is blessed with a terrifically central location, with its main road forming an important coalition of businesses and civic services. Along with the likes of Roodepoort and Paardekraal, Florida was borne out of the gold rush in 1881, and was initially established as a mining camp. One of Florida’s greatest attractions is its local library; reputed to be one of the most extensive facilities of its kind in Johannesburg, the library bears an impressive testament to the history of the suburb as well as the entire region. Other popular pastimes to pursue include paintball, hot air ballooning, and mountain biking – all in close proximity to Florida.
