GOLD REEF CITY REVAMP AIMS TO BOOST TOURISM

Johannesburg mayor Parks Tau says the new Tsogo Sun refurbishment and the expansion of Gold Reef City Casino will help boost tourism in the south of Johannesburg.

The R600-million project is nearing completion.

Gold Reef City features a strong historical aspect with its underground mine, mining village, and the apartheid museum.

Tau says it is important that they continue to promote tourism saying, “This development expands gold reef city as a tourism destination, high end tourists will come for our gambling activities.”

“The amount of investment Tsogo Sun has made in that direction is quiet impressive, the target markets are very impressive. It means we will be able to attract our high end investors that will be able to come into the city,” says Tau.

According to Tau, expansions to the theme park and the apartheid museum will ensure that Gold Reef City becomes a 24-hour destination.
