Experience South Africa's diverse African Cultures

At Lesedi, 'Place of Light' you can enjoy African Culture and Dancing.  This Cultural Village is specifically focussed on tourists and celebrates the cultural traditions of several different cultures of South Africa. 

Enjoy the Historical City of Pretoria by visiting the Voortrekker Monument, Church Square, Kruger House and the magnificent Union Buildings, (home to the President's office), from where you can delight in a panoramic view of the fondly named “Jacaranda City”.

Legend has it that an ancient civilisation came here on a pilgrimage from the lands in the North of Africa. They came to build a magnificent palace for their much-revered king. It served as the spiritual centre of their vast empire until an earthquake reduced it to ruins, now restored in form and rejuvenated in spirit.

This is an unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner.

The Monument was built in 1938 and inaugurated in 1949. It was designed by architect Gerard Moerdijk. The Hall of Heroes house the world’s longest historical marble frieze. A tapestry with more than three million stitches is housed in the Cenotaph Hall.

Today it is the most visited heritage site of its kind in

South Africa.

This Historical house is nestled in the picturesque village of Irene, with its deep green meadows and hay-scented air, a peaceful haven that seems oddly out of place on the industrialised Highveld between Johannesburg and Pretoria.  

This Premier Mine is an underground diamond mine situated in the town of Cullinan, 40 kilometers east of Pretoria. Established in 1902 and renamed the Cullinan Diamond Mine in November 2003 in celebration of its centenary.

Gold Reef City is a large amusement park in Johannesburg, South Africa.  

It is located on an old gold mine, the park is themed around the gold rush on the Witwatersrand.

Nelson Mandela's humble little house in Orlando West, Soweto, now called the Mandela Family Museum, is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history on the world's most famous former prisoner.

The Apartheid Museum aims to keep memory alive by presenting the story of apartheid and how it affected the lives of millions of ordinary South Africans.

The memorial was erected to commemorate the death of 13 year old Hector Petersen who was killed in the student protests of June 1976.

Regina Mundi Catholic Church in Moroka, Soweto, was built in 1964. Not only is it one of the biggest churches in Africa, but it has a unique history too.

All the above day trips can also form part of a custom Safari or Tour package.
