This is a huge luxurious complex, with lots of slot machines, casinos and restaurants. As you enter the complex, you will be subjected to a personal body search. This is a “cool” place in which to spend a few hours.

Was a pleasant surprise to see how clean facilities were! Staff were friendly and helpful. Trip for 4 family members to do all the rides including the mine tour was R1300. A bit expensive but definitely worth every cent! Make it a full day outing....More
