Take a full-day tour as you experience some of the most historically important sites in South Africa.
First stop – Soweto, a Johannesburg township has a rich and inspiring history. Today, it is a vibrant urban settlement filled with welcoming, friendly people who are happy to open their hearts and homes to locals and international tourists alike.
Our first stop is Soccer City, or the FNB Stadium (also known as “The Calabash”). To prepare for the FIFA World Cup of 2010, it was improved upon to host an impressive 94 700 seats, making it the largest of its kind on the continent. We then visit Chris Hani Baragwanath, or “Bara” Hospital, the third largest hospital in the world.
Next, we head to the Hector Pieterson Museum – a historically significant memorial honouring the life of the first child to be killed during the Soweto uprising in 1976. For South Africans, Hector has become a national symbol of the struggle against apartheid.
We stop for lunch at a local eatery where visitors can mingle with the locals and experience authentic African cuisine,
After lunch it’s the Apartheid Museum. It is a symbol of living memory – an important reminder of the darkest period in South African history. Taking this tour will give you the opportunity to understand and appreciate the realities of apartheid through photography, film, design and art. The Apartheid Museum is a must-see for South Africans and international travelers alike.
We then go to the Johannesburg CBD, visiting attractions including Constitutional Hill, Newtown Cultural Precinct, Gandhi Square and Carlton Centre. As the tour ends, we drive through Yeoville and Hillbrow – areas of cultural diversity and social significance in modern-day Jozi. Spend the day with us and experience the best that our country has to offer.
