Soweto is an urban settlement or 'township' in South Africa, southwest of Johannesburg inner city with a population of approximately 1.3 million.

Day 3

After breakfast, you will be taken to the Apartheid Museum. The museum is the first of its kind and illustrates the rise and fall of apartheid. It uses film, traditional exhibits and architecture to take you through the epic saga of our country’s history. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental. After spending time here you can go to Gold Reef City where you can learn about the development of this city from the time gold was first discovered here. Or you can take the fun option to go on some of the rides at the theme park or try your hand at some gambling at the casino.

Day 4

Big 5 Safari - Pilansberg
08:00: Breakfast at Curiocity
09:00: Pilanesberg National Park
Joburg might feel more like an urban jungle than ‘real’ Africa, but you can still get a taste of the real thing with a day at the Pilanesberg National Park, home of the Big 5.

Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa’s fourth largest game park, is situated in a crater in the Bojanala Region of the North West Province. This crater is
the product of a volcano that erupted many millions of years ago. This extinct volcano has evolved to become one of the most fascinating landscapes for you to visit. By the Genesis project the majority of South Africa’s wildlife is now found in the Pilanesberg game reserve.

The park covers an area of 55 000 hectares. More than 7000 animals live here in a free and unhindered environment. Pilanesberg is home to all of the BIG 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo and lion) and we guarantee that you will be able to tick off most on your list of game sightings! Other animals that you may encounter are zebra, giraffe, cheetah, hyena, hippo, crocodile, jackal,
wild cat, various antelope as well as over 300 bird species the list is endless. Pilanesberg offers over 200 km of roads for guided or self-drive game viewing.

On our tour you enjoy an extensive game drive conducted by an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide who will answer all your questions about the fascinating wildlife and environment.
