An interesting walk through time and history, enjoying local delicacies and bingee jumping. Do the cycle tour of Soweto.
an amazing day out of sightseeing and activities in Soweto.
We drove through here on a tour, and you need to drive as it is so large. Different neighborhoods within Soweto with some areas nicely kept and others in not such great shape, not atypical of any other city/town around the world. But there was a spirit there, a joy in the people's faces, that made you smile. We stopped at a local home that had a restaurant, for lunch. While there some school children started dancing for us, and soon our entire group was entranced. The food was delicious and plentiful to be sure, but the people were the real stars.
Such an interesting location with so much history! I visited Mandela's house with quite a few of the original items still in there. We also visited the bungee jumping site in Soweto. If like me you are not a fan of heights it's still a great place to go and hang out with friends. Bar, music, food - what more can you ask for!
This place has so much history to it!It's an amazing place and well worth the visit. Don't be afraid of it's bad reputation. Use common sense and know where you are going and you should be fine.And PLEASE don't treat it like an "Human Zoo" like some people do. Be respectful and you will meet some of the nicer people I have ever seen.
Amazing people, unique places, intoxicating sounds and smells. An immersive experience. My advice, spend some time there, the people are so warm, you will soon make friends and together you will be able to explore all the secrets this place has to offer. Top tip, try the T-bone steak and pap enjoyed freshly served on the street!
Lots of cool things to do Great for tourists
