Soweto - an authentic, true & bespoke day with locals

Soweto - an authentic, true & bespoke day with locals

star-5

By far the most unique and authentic tour on offer in Soweto, covered often in local media. Many Soweto tours are covering the same sights in large groups. EENBLOND TOURS do things completely different. We believe in making travellers out of tourists, and prefer to share current day Soweto, let you experience life as it is lived today and meet some regular local people without ignoring the importance of past events. Your guide is well known and loved in Soweto, and also use 2 or 3 local guides to give you a more varied experience. I support local communities via my NGO, also entrepreneurs. More than 50% of your tour price goes back to the community. I don't support poverty tourism. Book now if you don't want a rushed experience in a bus full of tourists, but rather spend a warm, immersive day in a very interesting and friendly city. We would love to share Soweto with you over drinks, walking and lots of chatting. Local guides, transfers, admission fees and traditional lunch included.

Cradle of Human is a world Heritage site since from 1999 being honored for proving to the world it is true Africa is a continent to human origin. Through fossils excavated from this area everyone now answered that human ancestors are based in African soil. The journey of human evolution research takes us back to the years of Charles Darwin famous voyage from 1831 to 1836 which followed by written correspondence with fellow naturalists around the world. Through this he truly predicted Africa to be a place of Human evolution. The most significant discovery was done by Professor of Anatomy in the University of Witwatersrand in 1924 when he discovered the 'Taung child'. This vindicated Charles Darwin claim although the world rejected Dart's claim. Finally it was Robert Broom's triumph that brought the world attention. In 1947 he discovered what he described "the most important fossil skull in the world's history". That was the first lady named Mrs. Pless here at the Cradle of Humankind.
