Johannesburg: Stay of Distinction - Fairlawns Boutique Hotel

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 655

Journey to Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest city, to stay in a luxury hotel and explore the city’s fascinating history. Based at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, you’ll stay in a world-class suite and enjoy luxury elegance after time spent exploring Soweto and the nation’s history of Apartheid.


This 3-day South African vacation takes you to Johannesburg, where you’ll stay in premium accommodations and explore the city.

Your South African tour is all about Johannesburg, the nation’s largest city and a whirlwind of history and culture. During your time in Johannesburg, you’ll stay at the luxurious Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, a 5-star sanctuary in the trendy Sandton suburb of Morningside Manor. Designed as a country hotel in the heart of the suburbs, Fairlawns has 42 individualized, world-class suites that boast Euro-centric, elegant designs with tall doors, soft fabrics, and peaceful views of the estate. Beyond the gorgeous suites, the hotel boasts a conference centre, fully-equipped gym, a delectable a la carte restaurant, and a Balinese Spa that offers pampering treatments.

During your time in Johannesburg, you’ll head on a tour of Soweto or the South Western Townships, a crowded, bustling neighbourhood of low-income houses that’s home to over a million people. There is no better place to experience the essence of the Rainbow Nation than Soweto. As you explore the neighbourhood and visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, the Mandela House, and the Regina Mundi Church, you’ll learn about the Soweto uprising, South Africa under Apartheid, and the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. At tour’s end, you’ll stop by Soccer City, home to the 2010 FIFA World Cup final, to learn about the nation’s love of the sport. At the end of your time in Johannesburg, you’ll connect to the airport to continue your onward journey.

This Stay of Distinction in Johannesburg is a great addition to a longer South African vacation.

Day 2

Private Half Day Soweto Tour

Today you will enjoy a Private Half Day Soweto Tour. You know the name. It's a legend. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack.
Inside Soweto, you will visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; you will pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum (own account).
Your journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties.
Finally you will be taken past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final - this magnificent stadium is now nicknamed 'The Calabash' for its resemblance to the African Pot.
Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African story.
