Santarama Miniland - A Tiny Land of Wonder
To describe the Santarama Miniland in Johannesburg, is almost impossible, because of the skill, craftsmanship and foresight that has gone into this Johannesburg attraction. The Santarama Miniland has most of South Africa’s history, important buildings and even international icons on display, in mini form!
Santarama Miniland was established by an extremely important organization in South Africa, called SANTA. This organization saves countless lives each year through their promotion of Tuberculosis control in South Africa. They launched Santarama Miniland in 1973, to provide them with a steady income to assist in their cause. Each visitor to this attraction in Johannesburg assists in their own small way to the fight against TB. In order to keep the mini attractions updated and interesting, Santa relies on the generosity and support of big Companies to sponsor a model of their choice.
There are interactive mini entertainments to take part in, such as mini golf, with a lifelike Michael Jackson watching over the golfers. Take a mini train ride or go boating on a mini ferry. Around the park you will find the Port Elizabeth Campanile, Robben Island, a game park, scrap yard, Turffontein Racecource, and even King Kong!!
Within the park, you will also find an amazing replica of the Dromedaris, overlooking the Jan Smuts Airport (now OR Tambo Airport). This interesting ship can be used as a venue for parties, functions, events and weddings, complete with spit braai facilities, dance floor and full bar.
The Santarama Miniland also welcomes children’s birthday parties, which they set up in the safe and enclosed Kids Zazoo Party and Play Centre. The Kids Zazoo Party and Play Centre will keep the children occupied for hours, while the parents take some time off. Therefore, the Santarama Miniland was not only created for the raising of funds or amusement of children, but for the amazement of adults and a memorable experience. So, if you are looking to find a truly enjoyable and rewarding Johannesburg attraction, or simply want to escape to a life on a smaller, less complicated scale, come visit the Santarama Miniland.
