Johannesburg

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 490

South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg is the financial and commercial heart of the country. With boutiques, superb eateries, cafes and entertainment, there’s something for everyone.


South Africa’s pulsing commercial hub picked up a rough, somewhat deserved reputation in the 1980’s as Apartheid was disintegrating. Nowadays – besides being a lot safer – Jo’burg makes a fascinating visit, crucial to understanding the forces shaping modern South Africa.

Spend 3 days exploring the city sights, including a visit to historic Soweto (South West Township). Once the embodiment of apartheid inequality, it is now an essential stop for history-hungry visitors. See the homes of Winnie Mandela, Bishop Tutu, and the former home of Nelson Mandela.

    Opening early 2010, Legacy's latest hotel and all suites development is located adjacent to the prime location of Nelson Mandela Square. This is Legacy's fourth hotel on the cosmopolitan square in the heart of the Sandton business and leisure district. One could speak of the opulence of the rooms, the restaurant and lounge, pioneering fitness centre and health spa but we would suggest you come and see for yourself. Guests can enjoy the endless edge swimming pool, or perhaps, even the convenience of luxurious shopping at the Legacy Corner Mall, Michelangelo Towers Mall and Sandton City a lift trip away. We'd prefer to just call this the "Legacy Lifestyle".

Day 2

Half Day Soweto Tour

Today you will enjoy a 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.

Duration4 Hours

Half Day Johannesburg City Tour

Today you will enjoy a Half Day Johannesburg City Tour. South Africa's largest city remains its financial and commercial heart. It's in this fast-paced metropolis that the country's radical political and social transformation is most evident - this is the 'Rainbow Nation' at work. It's a heady experience, with contrasts of every kind around every single corner.
The tour sets off for Constitution Hill, home of South Africa's architectural marvel, the Constitutional Court and site of Johannesburg's Old Fort Prison (closed Sundays).
You will explore the inner city of Johannesburg and the influence the discovery of gold brought to this city and indeed South Africa.
You will visit and explore the Maboneng Precinct, a wonderful example of urban regeneration of the eastside of the Johannesburg CBD which is now home to several independent retail, restaurant, art and entertainment venues - fresh and unique lifestyle offerings of this new exciting development.
You finally return to your hotel via the flipside of the coin, the lush, up market suburb of lower Houghton. A city of contrasts, that's for certain.
