What to Expect
Discover the colour, energy, and history of vibrant Soweto during this Johannesburg bike tour. Hop on two wheels to explore the streets of the colourful region that more than three million people call home. With locals speaking all of the 11 official languages of South Africa, see if you can pick up a few local phrases to greet people while riding through the streets.

Explore some of the area’s most famous sights, learn about the history, and discover the people that make this area the vibrant region it is today. Call into a former migrant workers’ hostel for men to learn about the realities of life here. Continue on to Meadowlands, made famous when families were forcibly removed from Sophiatown to this town in the 1950s. Cycle past the historical landmarks of the 1976 student uprisings and visit the memorial site of Hector Pieterson, the 12-year-old student who was tragically killed while protesting in 1976. Cycle down Vilakazi Street, where Nelson Mandela used to live and where Bishop Desmond Tutu has his home.
End this unique Johannesburg Soweto tour at the local shebeen bar, where you can enjoy a drink, play a game of pool, and perhaps dance to the rhythm of kwaito music.
