Pretoria in a Morning

Purple trees line an avenue in Pretoria.

Complications of South African history abound and the capitol of South Africa embodies this. While the Dutch shirked British oppression, they in turn became oppressors. You’ll get insight into this story and view a very pretty city. – by Viator

Zulus, Xhosa and Pedi Tribal Day

Tribal dancers at Johannesburg's Lesedi Cutlural Center.

Soweto, Mandela’s Footsteps, Top of Africa

Tourists pose in a garden outside Johannesburg.

What a day of history, in fact very recent history. You’ll see the prison where both Gandhi and Mandela were locked up as a finish to this day of understanding Apartheid and what it took to dismantle it. – by Viator.

Early Man and Sterkfontein Caves

Early hominid reconstruction near Johannesberg.

Fossils of early man have been discovered all over Africa, and South Africa is no exception. You’ll don a helmet and visit the caves where the Home Neledi fossils have been found, as well as the Maropeng Visitors Center. – by Get Your Guide
