Introduction

The largest city in South Africa, Johannesburg is also one of the 50 largest urban areas in the world. The city is located in the Witwatersrand range of hills in the eastern plateau area of South Africa that is known as the Highveld and is in the middle of large-scale gold and diamond trade. The north and western parts of Johannesburg include undulating hills, while the eastern parts of the city are flatter. Johannesburg’s streams contribute to two of the largest rivers in South Africa, the Limpopo and the Orange. The streams led, in part, to the location of the city being founded; a main reason for Johannesburg’s location is the gold that was there. At one time, the Witwatersrand gold industry was responsible for 40 percent of the planet’s gold. 

A large city with a lot to offer, Johannesburg is a great place to turn to as you look for a unique moniker for your canine companion
