Gold Reef City Theme Park, Johannesburg (South Africa)

A former gold-mining closet, Gold Reef City in Johannesburg is now a premier destination for tourists who are interested in checking out the history of South Africa and what it has to offer. It is an entertainment destination in the South of Johannesburg and is likely to remind you of a mining-town which is situated close to the centre of Johannesburg or is just 20 minutes from OR Tambo Airport. People have been known to visit here to take a look at the extensive former mining spot and it also encloses the Apartheid Museum, a famous piece with history of inscribed struggles that the black had to go against the whites in South Africa.

History Of Gold Reef City

The gold mine closed in 1971, paving the way for a period of no business for a while following which the museum and show-pieces were built to commemorate the Gold-rush that occurred in 1886, on the Witwatersrand, over which many rivers flew and made the rocks very fertile and obtainable, with a lot of metal formation detected. Nevertheless, the museum and play-areas filled with games were built with much furor and excitement within the ranks as well as in frequent visitors to the town.

Attractions of Gold Reef City

There are usually circuses and other such fun-galas held here, making for a great attraction. There are excellent kids play areas as well as mini-rides built, to keep the younger ones engaged while the elder ones are more interested in checking out the history of the famous place, its working, its purpose and how everything was re-done to make it a popular revenue catcher for the government, who have done well to make something out of nothing)as the lands began to get barren) for mining. The roller-coasters here are a thrilling experience and the Gold Reef City Casino too is world famous and always hustling with visitors.

Setu's 11 days trip to Johannesburg

SA was one great destination and we really took many great memories back with us!The stays and few guides were really nice, except few.. but overall good experience, good place and fun! Travel agent tried his best and gave everything as per our requirements.. sometimes due to miscommunication or mismanagement things got off track a little but then Manoj helps out for everything and tried to give better be it stay or tour or anything.. Only Communication sometimes was missing! Otherwise overall it was very good and good experience booking travel through MK holidays..!! Manoj helps out every which way he can to make your trip memorable! He will somehow get the deal done!

SETU SUNIL Mumbai

Sharad's 9 days trip to Johannesburg

Overall the trip was good...but can be made more enjoyable such as hotel in Capetown can be provided near beaches or on mountains ,in kynsna cruise can be made private that could have been great. Flight tickets name should be correct.

Sharad Srk Bengaluru

Santosh's 14 days trip to Johannesburg

Hotels were very nice but Hotels staff were not. It seems they are not very happy with Indians around. Cab Driver were extremely good. Extremely happy with their services. Travel Agent was good. But there was multiple miscommunications. Due to that we missed out on few things like - Blyde River Canyon tour, Vineyard Tour, We couldn't spend much time on Franchoek aswell. Many memorable memories. Right from the start. Kruger was amazing spotted big 5 multiple times, amazing experience. Beautiful landscapes of Johannesburg & amazing small towns. Knysna was again amazingly beautiful, Waterfront as beautiful, Congo caves, Ostrich farm was amazing. Bungee Jumping was a thrilling experience. Beautiful Town of Franchoek was amazing. Another thrilling experience of Shark Cage dive, exiting one. Then trip to capetown & amazing 12 apostles were great. Beautiful landscapes & sea & food. Loved every bit of this country. Beautiful & Thrilling South Africa

Jimit's 10 days trip to Johannesburg

The trip was amazing. Our tour co-ordinator Besten Tours had everything arranged for us and all of it was arranged at the right spot and at right time. Not only Manoj from MK Holiday was available 24*7 for us. Thanks to him and Travel Triangle Team. Our trip was memorable.

Jimit Shah Mumbai

Abhinav's 9 days trip to Johannesburg

we booked our south africa trip from Mk holiday , thinking that it's got most of the bookings for SA from Travel triangle only later to find out how wrong we were. there is a serious lack in the pro activeness from the agent/TT , i had to personally follow up on each & every thing from them, despite the follow there we so many goof ups that happened from their end. Be assured that if you book from him it's not going to be a pleasant experience & be prepared to follow up every day for tickets & vouchers to be send to you, which by the way you've already paid for in advance. below i'll list down the good & the bad for the trip in detail Good 1. Good deal which would fit in your budget & probably offering the best rates. 2. the drivers that take you around are decent, but not that knowledgeable, they would be more like just drivers & not exactly tour guides, so be really sure of what you wanna do & research properly if booking with them Bad 1. Hotel & voucher are shared only like 2-3 days before your trip - we had booked our trip well in advance i.e. 6 months, but still all our bookings happened at the last minute just two days before our departure 2. On arrival at Joburg we were supposed to do a city tour as per the itinerary, but the same was not booked in advance & arrangements were made after we arrived at the hotel, a total mess of a welcome to the trip!! 3. All the rooms booked will be the cheapest ones, & very small, horrible was the room booked for us in cape town, it was a room which had a toilet inside it, without any partition & extremely small - we eventually had to request the hotel to upgrade us to a better room, which they were able to do the next day as they had vacant rooms available, else we might have had to change our hotels by paying extra 4. doesn't suggest a proper itinerary for e.g. Tsitsikamma National Park is really beautiful & one can take one night stay in the park to experience it better, but nothing of such was ever suggested by him. another such eg. we could have ideally stayed back in George while returning from outdshoorn/cango rather than going to knysna all the way & travel to capetown the next day while again passing from george on the way 5. probably the biggest goof up of the trip was that he forgot to book our hotel in capetown for the entire duration of our stay i.e. out of the 4 nights we had in capetown, hotel stay was only done for 3 nights & despite frantically calling him about it, he assured that he'll do the stay for the 4 night , to which he obviously couldn't as the hotel was completely booked for that night. 6. Lastly, the entire was filled with uncertainty about tours, driver details, & most importantly the room booking for the last day. i would really suggest not to book your trip with them as it's really not worth it that you being on vacation are being stressed about things & eventually end up spoiling your trip.

Sindhu's 13 days trip to Johannesburg

We had a honeymoon Tour of South Africa and Seychelles . It was a nice experience overall. Services were offered as committed. Definitely going to book with travel triangle again. Thanks to Mr Manoj Kumar for making our tour memorable and for managing our tour perfectly .

Dr Amber's 9 days trip to Johannesburg

The trip to south africa was planned and customized very well according to my needs by mr inderjot, our travel agent from flyocity. He was in contact the whole time, was up to date on our check ins in hotels and all transfers. Our all events went as planned hassle free. The only one little thing that was okay and not the best were the hotels which were around 10kms minimum far away from the main city. That caused a little bit of problems. But rest all was bang on and everything was well executed by our travel agent. Sterkfointan caves,Paraglyding, scenic beauty of SA on garden route, Suspension Bridge, Table Mountain

Soham's 7 days trip to Johannesburg

Brilliant place to visit. Good services provided by travel agent - but I had to chase the agents many times to confirm for certain vouchers and reservations.

Soham Mukherjee Kolkata

Vishal's 7 days trip to Johannesburg

Hotels were good, but the taxi driver offered were really terrible. They were in such a hurry as if they had to catch some return flights to their home. The best part being that they will not drive at night, whatsoever the case may be. Instead they will pick u up in 6:00 in the morning and then make you wait for hours on the airport or wherever the destination is. Surprisingly our agent also didn't bother once we are on the trip. They would just ask you to adhere to the timelines as if it was a group package. It's a better option to book in group rather than booking private tour then. Further , I would give a 3 star just for the ease of getting Visa and thereafter providing vouchers and other services like airport pick up and drop on time. Rest the guidance part during the trip was completely missing. And no doubt, SA is a very good country with very good people., excellent landscape, much to see and witness. The experience in the country was too great.
