Johannesburg – South Africa Tours
“The City of Gold” The “Place of Gold” as the Sotho word “Gauteng” suggests, harbors the gold fields of South Africa. Prior to the discovery of gold in 1886, Johannesburg was barren farmland. Then along came the discovery of gold and Johannes Joubert and Johannes Rissik commissioned the city, hence its name Johannesburg. People came from far and wide and the pastoral landscape changed almost overnight. Where once was a shanty mining town today’s Johannesburg has come to life. Although gold is no longer mined in Johannesburg, evidence is visible when you see the yellowish flat topped hills between the skyscrapers, houses, freeways, swimming pools and golf courses. Johannesburg is the financial center of South Africa, it is a culturally diverse city with many historic places of interest. Our tours to Joburg will leave you longing for more!

Day 3: 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, we visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; we pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum. Our journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. 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.
