Day 1: Arrive in Johannesburg

Upon arrival at O.R Tambo International Airport (Johannesburg), take the complimentary Peermont Hotels shuttle to the Peermont Metcourt Hotel. Embark on your drive-by tour of Johannesburg, South Africa's largest city remains its financial and commercial heart. It's in this fast-paced metropolis that the country's radical political and social transformation is most evident - this is the 'Rainbow Nation' at work. It's a heady experience, with contrasts of every kind around every single corner. Our tour sets off for Constitution Hill, home of South Africa's architectural marvel, the Constitutional Court and site of Johannesburg's Old Fort Prison (closed Sundays). We meander through the newly renovated, quaint and quirky suburb of Melville with its vibey shops and trendy restaurants, and past Newtown Market, home of Johannesburg Market Theatre. We continue the drive past Museum Africa, Johannesburg's premier cultural history museum, reminiscent of a 1950's shebeen or pub, and it's here you'll really sense the soul of the inner city. We return to your hotel via the flipside of the coin, the lush, upmarket suburb of lower Houghton. A city of contrasts, that's for certain. Return to your hotel and enjoy dinner at an Indian restaurant at the hotel’s casino and entertainment complex.

Day 2: Tour of Gold Reef City and Soweto Township

After a scrumptious breakfast, Visit Gold Reef City, a reconstruction of Johannesburg during the Gold Rush era, and experience the Victorian fun fair, brewery, pubs, restaurants and performances of gumboot dancing routines, devised decades ago by migrant mine workers. Then watch molten gold being poured or take a trip down an old mine shaft. (Gold Reef City is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Thereafter continue your tour of ... You know the name. It's a legend. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack. Inside Soweto, then visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; then pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum. Your journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. Finally take you past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, and host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African Story. After a lesson in South Africa’s history in Soweto, return to your hotel and dinner at an Indian restaurant at your resident casino complex.
