gauteng geography

Gauteng is bordered with Free State to the south but separated by the Vaal River. It also borders with North West Province to the west, Limpopo Province to the north, and the Mpumalanga Province to the east. Most of Gauteng is on the Highveld and between Pretoria and Johannesburg, there are undulating hills and low parallel ridges. Due to its lower altitude, the north of the province is more subtropical.

Gauteng is about 1 760 m above sea level, lying on the highest part of the interior plateau of the Highveld. The Vaal River forms a natural border between Gauteng and the Free State province in the south. 

Its grasslands of Gauteng are rich in indigenous plants and provide a home for 19 of the 39 birds endemic to the country. Occasional hills, ridges and mountain ranges break the landscape and provide rich sources of nature-based attractions. The Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve in Sedibeng and the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens - home to a pair of Black Eagles, one of the few breeding pairs of eagles to live in an urban environment, are just two of Gauteng's natural gems.
