South Africa has developed and changed dramatically over the 28-year period that Santarama Miniland, the entertainment complex has been open. A new scale model of Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner, floats on a replica of the East London Harbour situated along a bank of Wemmer Pan. Replicas of the old Jan Smuts Airport, Turffontein Race Course, Pietersburg Station, the Union Buildings and the Hillbrow Tower are some of the 80 scale models. A full-scale replica of Jan Van Riebeeck's ship, the Dromedarus, takes visitors on a free boat ride on the dam. Extra enjoyment is provided with a jumping castle and a nine-hole mini golf course, so children and parents alike are well catered to.

The Howick Falls display has no water, the Kraal scene had no cattle or people, the train had no petrol to take us round the place, the grass was so long we couldn't read the signs, there was a dead bird and old furniture thrown on to the Dromedaris boat,and litter all over the place. What a terrible outing.
