Gauteng (Sesotho for "place of gold") is South Africa's smallest province (17 000 square kilometres), but also the wealthiest and most densely populated. It includes most of the towns strung east to west along the gold reef, from Springs in the far East Rand to Randfontein in the west. It runs down to the Vaal River in the South, and just beyond South Africa's capital, Pretoria, in the north.

A fifth of the nation's population (8.8 million people) live in Gauteng. The province generates 34% of South Africa's GDP, and 9% of the GDP of the entire African continent.
