Ready to visit a city within a city? Ready to experience photo genetic, bustling Soweto? Let’s go!

On our way to Soweto we pass by the National Football Stadium, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the World Cup 2010. We enter the Diepkloof area, where we will take a walk past vendors selling just about anything.

In Orlando West we visit Vilakazi Street- drive past the former home of Nelson Mandela and past the home of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. You will have an opportunity to read about the Soweto uprising on 16 June 1976. On that tragic day an innocent little boy called Hector Pieterson gave up his life and kick-started the liberation of South Africa.

During this Soweto tour we will pass by the Mandela House. A visit into the museum is optional.

We continue our Soweto tour driving into one of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals.

On this half day tour our registered tour guide takes you on a tour through the Lion Park, a natural habitat only 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg. The park is home to more than 85 lions and other carnivores like the cheetah, hyena and wild dog.

Lion Park is home to the rare white lion, so make sure you bring your camera for some exclusive shots.

At Cub World you can observe baby lions, how cute is that? And when you are not frightened by tall animals with long necks, you can also feed the giraffes and ostriches!
