Why the travelers book this tour because Soweto represents the hard-fought struggle against apartheid. We look beyond the bloody legend of the 16 June 1976 uprising and behind the hardened face of resistance politics, to the core Soweto- its people. Soweto is about people leading their lives - working and commuting, celebrating and grieving, see the poverty of an informal settlement shack and hostels in contrast with upper class suburbs of Diepkloof in Soweto. this tour promises a warm experience of this fascinating place.

* A traveler said: "Loved this experience because our guide, Joseph, was really open with how life is living in South Africa and Johannesburg, and it was extremely eye-opening. This was a driving tour where he took us through several neighborhoods where you could see the drastic wealth-inequality which was really sad to see but necessary. It helped us understand how the impacts of the Apartheid are still very much alive today. And the Apartheid Museum in general was one of the highlights of the trip. Don't think of it as any old museum (cause to be honest museums aren't usually too appealing to me) but this was 100% worth going to Johannesburg for and I think visiting the museum is an absolute must-do if you visit South Africa to understand it's past and its people. Also they picked us up and dropped us off at the airport which was super convenient, and held all of our luggage for us in the car. It was safe with our driver because he stayed around/in the car the entire time while we got out of the car. We also got to pick what time we wanted to start and end the tour which was incredible because I was researching so many Joburg tours to see the Apartheid Museum and Soweto combined and this was the only place that i found that allowed us to arrange those details; everything else had a set time in the morning which we couldn't do since we were flying in from Cape Town that morning."

The Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest game reserve and home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including the Big Five. This classic 3-day tour offers just enough time to take in the highlights, including the Orpen-Satara region, the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondawels. Enjoy sunrise and sunset game drives, a traditional Bush Braai at the Marula Tree Boma, and accommodation in a safari lodge.
More

* A traveler said: "Overall I give this safari package a 5 star rating. I was beyond what I could have ever imagined. Viva Safaris goes out of their way to give you the ultimate safari experience through sunrise, sunset and all day drives through the game parks. The personnel at the loge were exceptional, the food was great. The only negative item was that I was given the impression that on the day of arrival there would be time to relax, maybe take a dip in the pool before heading out on the sunset drive. The drive from Johannesburg took 8 hours including stops so we didn't arrive until 5:00 pm and the sunset drive was departing at 5:30 so there was barely enough time to put your bags in the room before activities begin. I would definitely do this safari again, although next time I would book either the 4 or 5 day instead of the 3 day."
