To commemorate Youth Day on the 16th of June, we are pleased to offer an exclusive bus tour to Soweto that reveals another side to this bustling and dynamic community.

So, join your guides Boitumelo Moletsane and David Fleminger as we venture off the well-trodden tourist track to explore Soweto’s lesser-known (but no less important) historical sites.

Along the way, we’ll visit Regina Mundi Church (an important gathering place during apartheid, with bullet-holes still visible in the roof), the leafy Oppenheimer Gardens and Tower, and the eye-catching Soweto Theatre.

It’s a fascinating journey that will enlighten and surprise even the most jaded Joburger!

Please note that we will be disembarking from the bus at several points so bring along plenty of drinking water and wear comfortable walking shoes, a sunhat and sunblock. The bus will depart from Sunnyside Park Hotel, where there is secure parking. Please arrive 15 minutes early so the bus can leave on time.
