Essence of Johannesburg

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 546

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: 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.

Duration0 Hours
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, guests visit the Kliptown Open Air Museum where delegates met in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter, now the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights and the South African Constitution. This journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. The next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; guests will pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum (own account). Finally we take you past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. 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. Set off for Constitution Hill, home of South Africa's architectural marvel, the Constitutional Court and site of Johannesburg's Old Fort Prison (closed Sundays). Explore the inner city of Johannesburg learning about the gold rush and visit the Top of Africa, the 223m high Carlton Centre, with views as far as the capital city of Pretoria, before exploring the Maboneng Precinct, a wonderful example of urban regeneration on the eastside of Johannesburg. Return to your hotel via the lush, upmarket suburb of Houghton.
