A leisure visit to Soweto is not the first thing a Jo’burger would consider, as he considers his limited travel options, during this Covid-induced travel world.
Sure, options are somewhat limited, despite regional tourism opening and a handful of international source markets opening up. But this unprecedented period may in fact be the catalyst for South Africans to get to know more of our hidden gems.
Sho’t Left must be smiling at this assertion, that’s why they are there – to encourage domestic visits, our own jewels that foreign travellers marvel over.
African Quiver is a company that specializes in short term Study Abroad trips into southern Africa facilitating trips for students predominantly form the USA. Based on these students’ impressions of Soweto, such a Soweto trip for South Africans has been long in the making.
Our formula has been rock-solid and has seen countless Americans spend 2 nights at the classy Soweto Backpackers AKA, Lebo’s Backpackers. Excellent value accommodation, a vibey, yet classy environment with the unmistakable energy Soweto is famous for. Their dinners are especially gratifying, great portions of shisa nyama, sizzling off the braai.
But what makes Lebo’s ideal is the quality of their guides and their ability to guide you by bicycle (funky Cruisers) throughout infamous Soweto hot spots – The Hostels, Hector Pietersen’s Memorial, Vilakazi Street, Sakhumzi’s, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu’s houses and a shebeen or two.
Bid On Travel has recently pivoted from these international tours to focus on the domestic treasures that give South Africa the richness of cultural diversity, along with our staples of wildlife and magnificent landscapes. But a favourite among these is this Soweto Tour.
