Venue & Location

Johannesburg, South Africa's biggest city and capital of Gauteng province, began as a 19th-century gold-mining settlement. Its sprawling Soweto township was once home to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. Mandela’s former residence is now the Mandela House museum. Other Soweto museums that recount the struggle to end segregation include the somber Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, a former prison complex.

The workgroup and study committee meetings will take place at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton. Sandton is located just north of Johannesburg within easy driving distance of O.R.Tambo International Airport, the Johannesburg CBD and the City of Tshwane.

Johannesburg is the ideal entry point into Southern Africa, offering the shortest travelling time from Europe and North America. It is also an ideal springboard to other cities and places of interest in South Africa.

The Tutorials, Joint Regional Conference and B4 Colloquium, and Technical Tours will take place at Misty Hills in Muldersdrift.

Muldersdrift, in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, is a picturesque rural area situated 27 km north-west of the CBD between Johannesburg and the Magaliesberg mountain range. It is a popular escape from fast-paced Johannesburg and Pretoria. Situated only half an hour drive away from the noise and stress of city life, Muldersdrift is a countryside oasis and forms part of Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.

Johannesburg

What began as a 19th-century gold-mining settlement a little more than 100 years ago, Johannesburg is today South Africa’s most diverse, exciting and largest city, and the second-largest on the African continent.

Just a short distance from the city centre is the sprawling Soweto Township which was once home to Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, and where Mandela’s former residence is now the Mandela House Museum. In and around the city are the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, a former prison complex.

The Johannesburg inner city is undergoing a regeneration featuring the Newtown Cultural Precinct which has completely transformed the Market Theatre and surrounds.

The sprawl of the leafy northern suburbs - there are over six million trees in Johannesburg – inevitably draws the visitor to trendy suburbs like Parktown, Rosebank and Greenside, with their restaurant-lined avenues and the sprawling malls of Sandton.

Though not touted as an outdoor city for the outdoors type, there are a number of nearby parks and nature reserves like Emmarentia Dam and the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden which are worth a visit. The beautiful Magaliesberg is on the city’s doorstep, and you’re extremely well placed for adventures a little further afield, like the Kruger National Park and the game parks of the Lowveld.
