Day 1, 28 December
On arrival meet our friendly team and take a mini-tour of the hostel and get to know the community around us. Have a drink in our ‘Beach style’ bar, relax in our community park and make yourself at home. At 5:30pm we will embark on a Tuk Tuk sunset cruise that will take you for a sun-downer craft beer at the local brewery – Soweto Gold. Cruise along the famous Vilakazi Street and take in the cool vibe of the township. Back at Lebo’s at 7pm dinner will be served at our Outdoor Restaurant. Enjoy the rest of the evening with other guests and locals all joining together around the fire.
Day 2, 29 December
Join in for a breakfast buffet to get the right energy needed to explore Soweto by bike! The cycle tour will start at 10am and will take you around Soweto for 4 hours on a nice ‘leisurely’ ride cruising the famous and vibrant streets of this township. As we cycle, our guide will make several stops throughout the route to point out historical landmarks, famous neighbourhoods, as well as talking about today’s culture and current affairs. Stop at a food stall and taste some of the local street food and wash it all down with a drink at the shebeen. After taking it all in, park your bike back at Lebo’s and enjoy a home cooked lunch in the park. Spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing, walking around the community – or if you’d like to pedal some more – take up on our free bike rental offer and cycle to some of the sights you would like to spend more time at.
Your evening activity will be at your choice – a dinner at Vilakazi street, a performance at the Soweto theatre or an outing to one of the local clubs or pubs – we will advise you on what’s on! This evening is at your own cost!
Day 3, 30 December
Breakfast and check out after a full-on Soweto adventure. Transfer will be arranged to your next place of stay.
