Johannesburg Day Tours and Activities

As the largest city in the country, Johannesburg offers a fascinating insight into the history, the trials and tribulations, and current hopes and dreams of South Africa. It's here where you can confront the harrowing realities of apartheid and the modern township. But it's also where you can ponder the existence of humankind and marvel at the incredible wildlife we share this planet with. This is what our day tours and activities offer, whether it's exploring the city on a sightseeing trip or heading out to nearby national parks for safari.
