Gauteng is a diverse province that offers whatever your taste in the fields of art and entertainment. Whether you like more modern sounds of music, nightclubs from Soweto or jazz Gauteng has it all.
If you are more attuned to the classical, the State Theatre in Pretoria and the Civic Theatre in Johannesburg regularly present ballet and drama of international standard. And then there are smaller, more relaxed venues presenting music and drama – the Market Theatre, the Sound Stage, the casinos, the Barnyard Theatres, to mention just a few.
To experience some of the diversity that is part and parcel of the Rainbow Nation, take a guided tour of Soweto, visit the Ndebele Village at the National Culture History Museum or spend some time at the Lesedi cultural village. Don’t stop there. Gauteng has museums catering to every interest from railroads to military history, not to mention art galleries that feature indigenous, modern and classic artists.
And, of course, the casinos. Gauteng offers several five star casinos that are well run and attractive – music, drama and dance – as well as fine restaurants, hotels and safe, comfortable places where you can try to beat the odds.
