Day 1 - Monday

On arrival at O.R. Tambo International Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Afternoon collection from your hotel for a scheduled afternoon Johannesburg City Tour. Johannesburg is a booming, happening city and the area close to City Hall, Newtown Cultural Precinct and Maboneng Precinct, which has completely transformed the Market Theatre and surrounds, now forms the heart of urban revival. Visit the Ghandi Memorial, see how art is being used to revitalise and uplift the inner city of Johannesburg and get a bird’s eye view of Johannesburg from the top of Carlton Centre.

Return to your hotel for remainder of the evening at leisure. Overnight Park Inn Sandton (standard room) or similar

Day 2 - Tuesday (B, L)

This morning you will be collected for your scheduled morning Half Day Soweto Tour. Soweto is a cluster of townships located at the South Western flank of Johannesburg. It is from here that most of the struggle was fought against the injustices of the apartheid regime and is home to sites of historical importance. The tour ends with lunch at a local township tavern before proceeding to spend the remainder of the afternoon exploring the exhibit at The Apartheid Museum opened in 2001 and is acknowledged as the pre-eminent museum in the world dealing with 20th Century South Africa, at the heart of which is the apartheid story. The exhibits include provocative film footage, photographs, text panels and artifacts illustrating the events and human stories that are part of the epic saga.

For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental.

Overnight Park Inn Sandton (standard room) or similar

Day 3 - Wednesday (B, D)
