Alfred Lord Tennyson said:"Love is the only gold", well I doubt George Harrison who discovered gold by chance back in 1886 Johannesburg would agree.
Come discover the history of gold, from the farm where they first found it to the gold rush that developed because of it. We take your to Gold Reef City where you will see the process gold is put through to become the bricks we know them as.
Experience a few minutes out of the life of a miner as you go down at 14 shaft Crown Mines to see how gold was mined and still is mined to this day.
Gold Reef City is a living museum that has been recreated into an 1886 replica of Johannesburg. The same local stores, post office, doctors rooms and some of the rich mine owners and simple mine workers homes complete with mannequins depicting their comings and goings, take you back in time. Enjoy a ride on the steam train and of course no mine experience would be historically correct without traditional mine dancers.
Come back in history with us for a day.
