 Day 2: Johannesburg

Breakfast

Full day Joburg, Soweto & Apartheid Museum Tour

– Embark on your guided tour aboard a minibus and enjoy an orientation tour of central Johannesburg with highlights such as The Carlton Centre, a 50-storey building that only just misses out in the world’s 100 tallest buildings that offers superb 360-degree views of the city. 11 Diagonal Street is another building that will catch your eye – standing 80 metres high and created to look like a diamond, it reflects views of the Central Business District from each angle and was designed by the world-famous architect Helmut Jahn.

– Ponte City Towers is a 54-storey residential skyscraper known for its hollow cylindrical design that affords its tenants spectacular views of Johannesburg.

– Walk the path of racial segregation at the Apartheid Museum. This museum is dedicated to recounting the history of the rise and fall of apartheid in 20th century South Africa and focuses on the policy of racial segregation that was first enforced in the country in 1948, providing a very real image of what it was like to live in such a society.

– Get a taste of vibrant and gritty street life with a tour of Soweto. This township is located to the south-west of Johannesburg and is the biggest in the city, made famous for its role in the apartheid. Its roots trace back to the early days of gold mining when many migrant workers arrived in Johannesburg at the turn of the 20th century. Soweto still support close to 4 million people. See highlights such as the Hector Pieterson Museum and Memorial, honouring the student protests of 1976; Walter Sisulu Square, where the Freedom Charter was signed; Vilakazi Street whose former residents include two Nobel Peace Prize winners; and the brightly coloured Soweto Towers.

– Discover Nelson Mandela as more than just an important political figure as you tour through his bedroom, still with its original furnishings, and meet Mandela as a father and family man. The museum also incorporates interesting audio-visuals, photographic galleries and live guides as well as a visitor’s centre. (Lunch for own account)
