With more than 7 million people in 17 010km², Gauteng is the country's most densely populated province. Close to 100% of the people are urbanised. Less than 10% of the adults in Gauteng have received no schooling.
The history of the people (first world, third world & foreigners), shows itself in galleries, art routes, theatres, museums, mine dumps, historical battlefields & street names.
There are a plethora of museums in Gauteng, telling the tale of the people.
At The Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site, you will find Mrs Ples, a distant relative of Home Sapiens slumbering there.
