This two-hour history easy walk takes you from the Stamp Mills up to and into the Struben Confidence Reef gold mine, highlighting where the gold came from, and the people who discovered it, leading to the rise of the city of gold, Johannesburg. Andre will take you back to the 1880s and the characters who found gold here and changed the history of South Africa.

A booklet entitled Chasing Gold - the story of the pioneers who found gold on the west Witwatersrand and the part of Kloofendal Nature reserve played in it, will be on sale at R50 per copy. Please bring exact money.
