What you'll do

One of my favorite traditional dancing group will welcome you with a dance routine and song. Right after that, we get on our bicycles and visit historical sites like the hector Pietersen memorial site + the corner where the police confronted the students of 1976 and shot some of them. We will then make our way back to Vilakazi Street to see the Mandela family house and Desmond Tutu's House, which makes the two Nobel prize winners in one street. Join me as we cycle through the houses of Soweto, experience the community and it's warmth. You can not visit Soweto and not go see the famous Orlando towers, so we'll cycle to the towers, the Soweto towers used to be a power station but now it is a place of entertainment. It has activities like wall climbing, bungee jumping, free fall and paint ball shooting. While we are there we will enjoy the activities. I'll then take you for a refreshing beer tasting at the Soweto brewery (non alcohol beverages are also available for under age visitors) then I'll take you on a little hike at my favorite hiking spot to view Soweto on a higher level. We will then end our tour with a traditional Soweto Kota(Local Burger), this is an authentic Soweto meal. It is a hollowed out quarter of bread filled with fries, cheese, sauces and any ingredients of your choice depending on your appetite. This is a true authentic experience

I am a Soweto born entrepreneur, a cyclist and I am the founder of BOOK IBHONI. The word "IBHONI" is Soweto slang for saying "a bicycle" ..see? you have learned something new already. I love telling Soweto stories and sharing the rich heritage we have in Soweto with visitors. I having been hosting visitors in Soweto for the past 4 years, have won awards locally from LeadSA and Dept. of Agriculture and rural development, I am a brand ambassador for Brand South Africa & I am a qualified South African Specialist by South African tourism. Having me as your host makes you a visitor and not a tourist
