Ready to experience the lively atmosphere and bustling streets of Soweto? Let’s go!
On this full day tour your guide, (born and bred) will take you past all the hotspots in Soweto.
We affectionately refer to this as the good, the bad and the Ugly. The tour will take you deep into the township culture, so you can attain a personal experience of the diversity and rich history this part of Johannesburg has to offer.

Soweto-Aprartheid-CONTENT
En route to Soweto, we pass by the famous National Football Stadium City, which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Soccer World Cup 2010. From there, we enter the Diepkloof area, where the vendors are located, selling just about anything you can conjoure up in your imagination.

In Orlando West we visit Vilakazi Street- drive past the Mandela House where a visit into the museum is optional as well as 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.

For you to truly experience the full history and heritage of this famous township, our tour will take you into the depths of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals and see how they live.
We drive past the Soweto Campus of the Johannesburg University and end off our tour with a stop at the largest hospital in the world: Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.

Buffet meal at a local Restaurant, enjoy the delicious tastes and smells of local cuisine( starter , main course and dessert)

The driver was a bit late to pick us up, reason was traffic. It was really nice to see Soweto and to walk around a bit. Goodwell is a very friendly guy, he explains a lot about RSA and South Africa. We were with 3 kids and he was very patient and helpful.
Lunch was also great experience. Can fully recommend MoAfrika Tours and Goodwell.

As a former South African this was a. journey that was long overdue . It was well organised ,(pick ups and drop offs where you needed) the tour guide was eloquent and passionate about Soweto . He spoke from his own experiences.Some of the parts are shocking when you visit the slums and see such disparity of wealth in Soweto. the museum was very informative and educational to see how unjust one race could be against another . No cameras allowed inside the museum so pack it away when you go inside and take bottles of water as it’s very hot and dusty Mo Afrika tours I would highly recommend

My group used this company for my study abroad trip in Johannesburg. Our guide was Goodwill aka Khutso. He was great at informing us on the history of South Africa and it seemed there was nothing that he did not have answers for. Goodwill also was very good at providing information that we didn’t even have questions for while driving to next stops on our itinerary. Goodwill and our driver Peter were always on time or early to pick us up for the three days we required their services and made sure to get us to and from the airport on time.The van that we were escorted in was very comfortable and came with space for our luggage, A/C and heat, and enough space to stretch. Goodwill escorted us to many different areas such as schools, restaurants, local neighborhoods, malls, and museums. Goodwill also knew where to find attractions for thrill seekers but we were on a strict itinerary and did not have time to stop at any.
