The bustling, historic township of Soweto is the focus of the morning, after which guests travel on to Gold Reef City for a tour of a gold mine.
Guests will be met at any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria from where the day is spent enjoying the Soweto and Gold Reef City Day Tour. The bustling township of Soweto, largest of all South Africa's townships, is the focus of the morning. Soweto played an important role in the struggle against apartheid. Time is devoted to revisiting Nelson Mandela's years in Soweto after which a visit to the Hector Pieterson Memorial is made. This memorial commemorates one of the darkest days in South Africa's history. A stop is made at an authentic 'shebeen' before traveling on to Gold Reef City.
Golf Reef City is located on a 10Ha site which surrounds the old no. 14 shaft at the Crown Mines gold mine. It depicts Johannesburg as it was in the gold mining heyday of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The gold mining industry was and still is a fundamental factor in the history and economic development of South Africa. Gold Reef City offers the visitor a glimpse into the gold mining industry. A highlight is the tour into the belly of a gold mine and thereafter an opportunity to view the melting and pouring process which culminates in a gleaming bar of gold bullion.
The tour ends during the late afternoon, when guests are transferred to any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria.
