Soweto and Johannesburg CBD Tour – Tuesdays to Sundays
Our tour of the South Western Township (So-We-To) offers a glimpse into the lives of the people who helped build Johannesburg and who continue to arrive seeking their piece of Africa’s largest economy. Soweto (pop. 2.5 million) is a big city in its’ own right.It is a buzzing, bustling mix of traders, mini bus taxis, restaurants, shops, shebeens, informal settlements, millionaire’s homes and development projects.
