South Africa Things to Do: 727 reviews and 1,118 photos


A must do when visiting SA is to see Gold Reef City.
It is a great place for more than one reason. It is interesting historically as it is built around an old gold mining town. You can go down in a mine shaft and be given a tour, you can see the gumboot dancers in the square, or you can go for a ride on a horse and cart. But even better if you are a fun loving person like me...you can take a ride on the fastest rollercoster in the country which speeds up to an amazing 96 km/h. There are also many other rides which makes it a great day out.

Directions: Gold Reef City can also be found just outside of Jo'burg and is very well signposted.
