This 10-day tour takes us around the Eastern Cape and Gauteng provinces of South Africa, while also visiting the land-locked country of Lesotho. First – we explore the cultural metropolis of South Africa in Johannesburg – visit Nelson Mandela’s house, walk through the eerie history of the Apartheid Museum and visit Soweto, the most densely populated township in the country.
After Johannesburg, we visit a stunning range of mountains stretching over 200 km called the Drakensberg. Accessible plateaus and numerous passes and slopes in the area make for some of the best hiking in the country. We also have a chance to visit Nelson Mandela’s capture site, where he was arrested on 5 August 1962; he then spent the next 27 years of his life in prison.
We continue to enjoy breathtaking view sites along the Sani Pass in Lesotho, climbing a grand total of 2874 metres above sea level and enjoying lunch at the highest pub in Africa, the Sani Mountain Lodge. We end our trip in Durban and explore the beachfront and historical attractions, such as Moses Mabhida Stadium, which hosted 7 FIFA World Cup matches during the 2010 World Cup or Ushaka Marine World, which offers a water park and aquarium.
