Born as a suburb to Benoni before becoming independent with its own town status in 1912, Brakpan is a city in the Gauteng province of South Africa with a character all its own. Home to a non-perennial lake that has a tendency to annually dry up, British inhabitants to the area in the 1880s took to referring to it afterwards as "brackish pan."
Over a century of time passing may not mean much change for the climate, but the same cannot stand for its residents. With a minimum legal drinking age of 31 and rumor of a Brakpan Lottery worth R3 million (approximately $450,000 or €350,000), no one can say there is a shortage of unique personality inherent to this mining town.
Recent business development has given the tinned roof suburbs opportunity to find their foot to flourish. A casino complex affectionately referred to as "Carnival City" is a local favorite to explore the less conservative sides of the town.
