Still Chief, is the Time Square Casino, which is counted among the biggest in Africa with 2,000 slot machines and 60 games tables for guests to further bask in enjoyment.
So much is integral to tourism and one of them is hospitality and South Africa which takes it as more than a serious business, thrives greatly in it not only because it finds it as such or puts it first but because it truly knows the onions of hospitality.
