Day 1  Arrival    
Arrive early into Johannesburg airport and transfer to your hotel. With an enviable location in upmarket Sandton, the stylish Radisson Blu Hotel Sandton provides an ideal base to explore this exciting city. Once checked in, head to nearby Nelson Mandela Square and its neighbouring shopping centre to sample the selection of trendy bars and restaurants.    

Day 2  Soweto Township Tour & afternoon at leisure    
The city of Soweto, just south of Jo’burg, is steeped in history and lays claim to being the former home of both Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela and the centre of political campaigns aimed at overthrowing the apartheid regime. Spend the morning reliving this turbulent period of South Africa’s past on an informative tour, before heading back to your hotel to perhaps relax by the trendy rooftop pool for the afternoon. It’s the perfect place to watch the sun set over the city with a cocktail in hand.    

Day 3  Cradle of Humankind Tour    
Rise early today and head to one of the world’s richest palaeo-anthropological sites to discover how the human race came to be. Visit the Maropeng Visitor Centre to learn about the development of our ancestors over millions of years, before descending to the Sterkfontein Caves to see pre-human fossils, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where archaeologists continue to excavate and uncover more treasures to this day.

Day 4  Departure    
Make the most of your last few hours in the city, before transferring back to the airport for your flight home.
