View Google Map of Benoni, South AfricaBenoni is very diverse, with people of every colour and denomination. There are over ten schools in Benoni and in some areas there is a concentration of up to 6000 students within a 5km radius.

Over time gold mining has decreased in importance. Today the town is focused more on industry and services, rather than mining, and is used as a service hub for other East Rand towns such as Brakpan, Nigel and Springs. Benoni is also the site of the Benoni Heliport, for the use of helicopters.

Visitors to the town may visit the local museum, the many lakes, the Lakeside Shopping Mall (built in the shape of a Mississippi Steamboat on one of the lakes) or Northmead Square (known as the first shopping centre to bring cinemas back to Benoni) located in the suburbs. 

Near to Northmead Square is the Bunny Park which contains hundreds of rabbits and other small animals and is aimed at children. Willowmoore Park is a provincial and One-Day International Cricket venue. Sibikwa, an international recognised and aclaimed community theatre, is situated in the east of the town since 1989.

It is believed that Benoni has more horse stables per square kilometre than any other place in the Southern Hemisphere.

Charlize Theron - born in Benoni, South AfricaDuring the 1990's Benoni was the site for the WOMAD Festival (the World of Music, Arts and Dance), an international cultural festival held annually around the world and used to showcase various artists.

World famous Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron was born in Benoni. She then moved to become a star in Hollywood, but was seen in Benoni again promoting her movie Monster.

In December 2004, Israel Travis led a historic tour of the city on horseback while some of the tourists rode on an 1800s Victorian Spider carriage. The tourists were dressed in traditional British and Boer clothing. The tour included some of the gold mines and a parade through the main street, Prince’s Avenue.

Benoni was also the setting for the MTV-inspired, popular cult movie Crazy Monkey: Straight Outta Benoni, released internationally in 2005.

The town is currently run by the African National Congress (ANC), with the liberal-democratic Democratic Alliance being the official local opposition.

Boksburg is a city on the East Rand of Gauteng, South Africa. Gold was discovered in Boksburg in 1887. It was named after the State Secretary of the South African Republic, W. Eduard Bok. The Main Reef Road linked Boksburg to all the other major mining towns on the Witwatersrand and the Angelo Hotel (1887) was used as a staging post.

The Mining Commissioner Montague White built a large dam which, empty for years, was dubbed White's Folly until a flashflood in 1889 silenced detractors. The 150,000 square metre dam is now the Boksburg Lake, and is surrounded by lawns, trees, and terraces. A railway was built to link Boksburg to Johannesburg in 1890.  Boksburg is now part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality, that includes much of the East Rand.
