Pretoria and Mamelodi Township Tour- R950.00

South Africa's townships are infused with the spirit of ubuntu, which means: ‘I am, because we are’. A term for neighbourliness, and a proudly South African humanist philosophy, it is a wisdom widely embraced by all South Africans today. Take a township tour and experience the spirit of togetherness and unity among its people.

The townships in South Africa were designed as fortresses of apartheid control, a malicious and deliberate use of urban planning to alienate communities.
You will drive through informal settlements where, shacks are being replaced by government subsidised houses, hostels are being carved up into proper family quarters, roads are continuously being tarred, and basic services are slowly being installed.

  • Voortrekker monument
