    If you really want to feel home in Johannesburg and understand how most of the people are living in this city you should definitely go there for some nights. Do a bicycle tour with a hostel guide and find brilliant places in SAs largest township

    A wonderful Place to stay in Soweto, the best way to experience this vibration township! Nice dinners and excellent cycling tours! The atmosphere is very familiar, it’s easy to meet people in the common areas! I recommend the place of all my heart!

    Yes, I would contact the company. From what I understand they will rent more tuk tuks for a large group. Hope you get to go. It is fantastic!
