Day 2. Johannesburg City Tour Highlights. Johannesburg City . Accommodation. Saba Lodge, Johannesburg.

The Johannesburg City Tour is a great introduction to the second largest city in Africa. Start the day with the lively atmosphere and bustling streets of Soweto where your local guide takes you past all the hotspots of the ‘city within a city’ - Vilakazi Street, Mandela House (optional visit to the museum) and see the past home of the revered Archbishop Desmond Tutu – both of whom were integral in shaping modern South Africa. Then we head to the Apartheid Museum for a look into the history of South Africa and the struggle of its people during the Apartheid era.

After lunch, we head into the heart of the city to visit some of the iconic sites of the area - Telekom Tower at 269m, Constitution Hill for a guided tour of the facility that once tried both Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi and the impressive Mandela Bridge.

We return to our accommodation in the late afternoon for an evening at leisure. 1 images Johannesburg City 3 images Saba Lodge, Johannesburg

Day 3. Cradle of Humankind Tour Highlights. Maropeng, Cradle of Mankind. Accommodation. Saba Lodge, Johannesburg.

The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site is one of eight South African World Heritage Sites. It is the world's richest hominid site, home to around 40% of the world's human ancestor fossils. The 53 000ha area is also home to a diversity of birds, animals and plants, some of which are rare or endangered.

We start this fun-filled full day tour at the Maropeng Visitors Centre where we read up on the facts about the evolution of the world and especially humankind. We then view the fossils, learn how humankind evolved, view stone tools up to 1-million years old, take a ride through the ‘ice age’ or check out the cool souvenirs on offer. Our last stop is the visitor's centre of the Sterkfontein Caves, where a permanent hominid exhibition is displayed.

After our historical day, we return to our accommodation to overnight. 2 images Maropeng, Cradle of Mankind 3 images Saba Lodge, Johannesburg
