GOLD REEF CITY TOUR : (around 4 hours)

Hours allocated include travelling time.

Gold Reef City is located South of Johannesburg.
The site where Gold Reef City is situated is an old gold mine and it has been modelled to resemble the gold rush and the gold rich history of Johannesburg. The area was flooded  by Prospectors after the discovery of Gold in 1886. Over its 90-year lifespan the mine produced some 1.4 million kilograms of gold, blasted out of the ground by 30 000 miners.

With its Victorian houses and geological displays, it offers many fascinating insights into life in Johannesburg long before the technological age. In the centre of Gold Reef City stands Shaft No 14, opened in 1887 and closed after 84 years of operation in 1971.

 

Gold Reef City Museum

There is a museum dedicated to gold mining on the grounds where it is possible to see a gold-containing ore vein and see how real gold is poured into barrels

You will be taken on tour, through the Museum, travel down the Mine Shaft, view the Gold Reef that gave birth to Johannesburg and watch the Gold Pour.

Gold Reef City is actually a combination of a Theme Park and a Life Museum of a Victorian Architecture depicting the story of Gold. It is one of Johannesburg most popular attractions for Tourists and locals alike.
