Tour Soweto

 +27 72 368 9344     25 Feb 2022

Led by photojournalist Ilan Ossendryver, experience Soweto by getting an opportunity to meet local community members and even celebrate birthdays and special occasions with the children of Kliptown.

Ossendryver collects you from your hotel and transports you around Soweto, all the while sharing stories and insights from his many years of travelling the length and breadth of Johannesburg. He also has had a bird's eye view of political change in South Africa and is extremely knowledgeable about local context and generous with information.

His warmth and good humour is infectious, and a bonus of his tours is that he will guide your photography, while ensuring you get many fantastic photo opportunities and even share a large file of photographs shot by him on the day after the trip, making for an extra memorable experience.

Expect to be led down alleyways and paths not usually visited by tourists. You'll also get a chance to meet local traders, sangomas and other Soweto denizens plus he'll lead you to the best 'vetkoek' in Soweto. This is a unique way to experience this complex and fascinating place.

Ossendryver also offers tours to Alexandra and Diepsloot.
