About Cycle in Soweto

South Africa’s colourful, complex, poignant history is what makes this country and its people so special today. Many of the major metropolises have incredible tributes to the heritage that laid the foundation for their bustling success. Johannesburg is no exception. The massive township of Soweto lies just outside the city’s borders and is brimming with sights, sounds, flavours and rhythms.

These cycling tours are available for visitors every day between 08h30 and 18h00, and are conducted in the bus parking lot behind the famous Hector Pieterson Museum in Orlando West by a company called Cycle in Soweto. The tours range from a brief one, called “Basix of Soweto”, which lasts for two hours and gives riders a ‘day in the life’ perspective of those living in this vibrant township.

Those who can dedicate more time to the once-in-a-lifetime experience can do a half-day tour, which lasts about four hours. Each of these half-day tours has its own theme and can be tailored to meet your specific preferences. Both the two-hour and four-hour trips include a visit to Nelson Mandela’s home, a taxi rank, the mega-hospital, and some other well-known spots.

There is also a historical segment that outlines the last 100 years of Soweto, which covers the tales of local folk from the birth of Soweto right up until the building of the luxurious 5-star Soweto Hotel in recent years.

For visitors to South Africa and Gauteng that are looking for an adrenalin rush, pairing a cycle with a bungee jump is the perfect opportunity to get the most out of your time in Soweto.

Cycle tours are an eco-friendly, energy-efficient way to tour the country, meet the local community members and take in the sights, sunshine and smiles of South Africa.

Cycle in Soweto can arrange collection and drop-off services from anywhere in Johannesburg.
