We conduct private and small group tours around JHB, JHB/Soweto, Apartheid museum, The Cradle of Humankind, Pretoria and the Pilanesberg. We also do overnight tours to Pilanesberg, camping or chalet and lodge venues. Group size is kept small to ensure an exclusive experience. We try to accommodate special requests as far as possible.
