Explore Gold Reef City

Johannesburg is South Africa's biggest and busiest city and it owes its existence to the discovery of gold on the Witswatersrand during the 1880s. The Gold Rush led to an influx of miners, labourers and their families as the settlement swelled dramatically. On this tour you can visit Mining Shaft 14 and actually go underground with the chance of seeing gold ingots being made! The rest of Gold Reef City is worth exploring with its theme park, Casino and entertainment.
