Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Taste of Africa, responsible travel, involved in creating interaction with the locals, driven by Radical Economic Transformation in the tourism sector. We will do no zoo-like visits, our of respect to the local people. Nothing is standard, we allow the visitors interest to dictate. Where possible, we do not link different client groups, giving the visitor the comfort os a private visit.

In 2007 we had an half-day Soweto tour with "Taste of Africa", it was very interesting: our guide was a very young girl from Soweto, both she and the driver explained and showed us a lot of interesting things about life in South Africa and in Soweto.
Last August (2013) we went again to Johannesburg and we asked to Cedric (the owner of the company) to have a tour called “Unseen streets of Johannesburg”. We first went to Alexandra (the other big township in Joburg) where we had a walk with Jabu, a man from there, we also met his wife Judith and they showed us their small house, then we continued walking with Jabu and Adolf too, another man from there. It was interesting because we had a sight to the township and we talked with them about many subjects: politics, daily life, TV, soccer, school, troubles in South Africa and in Italy and much more. In Alexandra people were friendly with us, I can assure you that it’s not dangerous if you go with them.
Later in the morning we went to the city centre with Cedric and Adolf, we visited a street market and then we had a walk in the center.
There are many reasons to choose a tour with “Taste of Africa”: Cedric is skilled and reliable, it’s a company working in responsible-tourism sector, they give job opportunities to local people, you can see a true example of daily life in the township that it’s impossible to see if you go there with a “bus tour” without walking around.
