Gold was discovered here in Kromdraai in 1881 (5 years before the gold reef was discovered in Johannesburg) by Johannes Stephanus Minnaar. The first government mining concession on the Witwatersrand was granted to Kromdraai Goldmine by the first President of South Africa, Paul Kruger.

The trip includes an exciting and informative tour of 1 hour (lecture on history and geology of the mine) by the friendly owner of the farm and comprises of an underground trip - a level and easy walk for all ages, inside the mine tunnel.
