Just eight kilometres from the city centre, eight kilometres from Soweto, 15 kilometres from Sandton and 25 kilometres from O.R. Tambo International Airport, is Gold Reef City. That’s where I’m writing from now and it’s abuzz with excitement because tonight is the night we relaunch this magnificent Jozi landmark after phase one of what will be a R630 million refurbishment.
Our very own CEO of Tsogo Sun Marcel von Aulock says,
“This investment is in line with the group’s corporate strategy to invest in and expand its operations in South Africa. We are committed to ensuring that our properties stay relevant, fresh and competitive in the leisure market. Added to this, the selection of offerings at our properties are vitally important components in ensuring great experiences for all our guests.”
For many South Africans, Gold Reef City conjures up images of carefree days spent exploring the Victorian buildings and gold mine that provided a perfect blend of educational and entertainment value. Today, Gold Reef City is, without doubt, the premier entertainment destination in southern Johannesburg. Going through the property you can see that it has stuck to its roots and overall theme and the look and feel is old school Joburg with a touch of modern updates here and there.
Gold Reef City really is one of a kind, there is nowhere else in South Africa, if not the world, where one can experience a world-class Theme Park, the historical significance of the Apartheid Museum, enjoy the thrill of a casino, an opulent theatre, and the family-friendly entertainment value of movies, 10-pin bowling, a games arcade and a diverse selection of restaurants
