Xceptional Safari invites you to come and experience South Africa’s “city of gold” on the Johannesburg City Break Tour. This three day tour include highlights such as visits to Soweto, Nelson Mandela's old house and Pilanesberg National Park.  



Day 1 to 3

Day 1

Soweto is the melting pot of South African cultures and the focal point of political transformation. It is the most metropolitan township in the country and houses over a million people. Soweto is dynamic, vibrant and its people have been setting trends in music, fashion and culture. Visiting the township will reveal a world that suffered under harsh political turmoil but also radiates rich cultural and political auras. This tapestry makes a fascinating encounter with the people of Africa.

Day 2

Experience Sun City and Pilansberg National Park today. Situated approximately two hours from Johannesburg, you will find “Africa’s Kingdom of Pleasure.” Sun City is internationally renowned as Africa's premier holiday resort. Sun City offers a myriad of different entertainment and relaxation opportunities, as well as enough attractions and activities to keep everyone busy. The fabulous Sun City resort complex captivates visitors with its combination of golf, game and gambling as well as world-class hotels.

The Pilanesberg National Park, which covers some 55 000 hectare, is the fourth largest in southern Africa. This malaria-free park is perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater - one of only three such craters in the world. You are sure to experience the best Africa has to offer since the reserve is home to lion, buffalo, rhino, leopard and elephant – Africa’s Big Five.
