Johannesburg and Soweto Orientation

Johannesburg and Soweto Orientation

The tour is designed to give the visitor to Johannesburg an overall impression of “Egoli” - the City of Gold, South Africa’s commercial and financial capital. You take a look around the northern suburbs, then on to the hustle and bustle of Hillbrow and the downtown area to view a “mini -Manhattan” from the 50th floor of the Carlton Center. Continuing to Soweto (south western township), largest black residential area in South Africa,  you see a fascinating contrast to Sandton and Rosebank in the north.

This sprawling “city within a city” essentially acts as a labor reservoir for the greater metropolitan area of the Witwatersrand. In many ways, the story of Soweto is the story of South Africa . The tour includes all the major points of interest, such as Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Baragwanath taxi rank, Freedom Square, Hector Peterson Memorial and Nelson Mandela’s former home.
