Soweto and Johannesburg Tour
See Soweto and Jozi
Soweto consists of a community of extremes. On the one hand there is abject poverty and on the other hand there is extraordinary wealth in the upper class suburbs such as Diepkloof Extension and Selection Park. Some of the houses in that area sell for over one and two million rands. Today Soweto is the largest Black residential area in South Africa and has a population of more than 3.5 Million people with the land in extent of 120KM squared. There is a visible development since 1994 (Post Apartheid Era).
Johannesburg town is an entirely unique experience which we have made part of the ultimate Johannesburg! We take you to the top sites Johannesburg has to offer. Some of the areas our tour passes through are Hillbrow, Central Johannesburg, Braamfontein and Newtown.
We start your introduction to Jozi with a view of the impressive 269 metre Telkom Tower, as seen on many postcards of Johannesburg’s distinctive skyline. We then enter the inspiring Constitution Hill – and Court (when not in session) Political activists like Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi were once held here. During a tour inside you will learn about some of the legal history of Johannesburg.
On our way to Newtown we pass by the longest southern African bridge, named Nelson Mandela bridge. At Mary Fitzgerald Square you can walk on the Jazz Walk of Fame.
We end this tour with a visit to the Carlton Centre, also known as the ‘Top of Africa’. A lift will elevate you 50 stories high for an amazing and total view over the city. In short, this tour offers you a unique Johannesburg experience at an affordable rate.
