Description
The Museum is home to the largest collection of money formerly used in South Africa, as well as housing extensive historical records stretching back to the early origins of Johannesburg.

As the only banking and money museum in South Africa, it is the custodian, not only of South Africa’s banking history, but also of the economic, political, and social changes that are often so dramatically reflected in these currencies.

Educating young South Africans about banking and finance - From displays of cowrie shells - primitive money from centuries ago - and Venetian glass beads, also once used as a currency - to coins recovered as treasure from sunken ships, all the way through to exhibitions on bank-related crime and how to use an ATM - its collection of over 600 money boxes, some dating back to the early 1800’s, reminds one of the days when young children were taught the wisdom of saving.

Kruger Park - Sable
Kruger Park - Sable (Website)

Sable Sleepover Hide, situated approximately 10 km from of Phalaborwa Gate, is a unique accommodation facility where guests can feel part of nature. A bird hide by day, it transforms into a primitive overnight dwelling by night, where a select few can experience the Kruger National Park nightlife first hand. The hide overlooks the Sable Dam where an abundance of animals gather to drink. Hear the lion roar and the hippo grunt meters away from where you are sleeping and know this is a true African experience.
