Full day tour of Soweto Township which we begin by browsing the city of Johannesburg which is the largest man made jungle in the world and also the largest city not built on a river, harbour, or situated on a lake. We then proceed to the Soccer City Stadium which is our first stop.

On our way we come across the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital which was once the largest in the world and now the largest in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere. You get to learn about its history and also why it was an important venue for the British Royal family including the young Queen Elizabeth to visit in 1947. We visit a squatter camp, a shanty town without electricity and plumbing. We visit the twin towers of Orlando Power Park each 100 metres tall and often mistaken for a Nuclear power plant.

A Recent Review of this tour

Very impressed by Nathan's knowledge of history of his country. He gave a very thorough tour of Jo'burg, Soweto, and everywhere inbetween. I highly recommend this tour. Put on your walking shoes, and be ready to trek through the big city! All of the tours Nathan guides are well worth the investment.
