Old Kromdraai Gold Mine

Old Kromdraai Gold Mine Review

For more recent history, tour the Old Kromdraai Gold Mine, one of the country's oldest gold mines, where gold was found in 1881. Frankly, it's a little spooky. You don a miner's helmet and wander into the mine's murky depths on one-hour guided tours. It's not a difficult walk, and if you're lucky, you'll see bats roosting.
