We reached Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport after a nine hour flight and we all were in for a surprise. Cricket legend Jonty Rhodes was waiting to receive us. After handshakes and hugs, obviously the topic of discussion was Cricket.

We were transferred to Melrose Arch Hotel from the airport where we dropped our luggage and got ready to start our trip. We arrived at the Gautrain park station just in time for city sightseeing tour in an open double Decker bus.

We boarded a Hop-on, Hop-off bus at 11:40 AM. I got to know about many historically significant sites in Jo'burg during this sightseeing trip. The bus dropped us at Gold Reef City. We had lunch at Back of the moon restaurant before heading to Shaft 14. We went deep down in the belly of the earth for the dormant gold mine tour. The Gold Reef City tour concluded with a demonstration of how gold is processed after it is extracted from a gold mine.

The day was not over yet. We moved to the Sel et Poivre restaurant for food and wine pairing, prepared by celebrity chef Coco Reinarhz. We reached back to the hotel after dinner and finally I passed some time in my luxurious room at Melrose Arch Hotel.
