Overview

Take a daily trip into Soweto and other Townships such as Alexandra and Diepsloot, South Africa, as a photojournalist and discover exciting happenings in the Townships. As we set out we plan a theme. It could be people staring out their shack windows, residents with umbrellas (see here) or growing food or whatever we decide. I photograph, you photograph and at the end of the trip, you will receive a CD with photos of the trip or the photos dropboxed to you. We discuss what makes great photo! Improve on photography while enjoying South African township life. Join us up to 5 people per group. Bring Cameras! A hat for the sun. Most of all, bring your creativity!

Hi The base charge for a 4 - 6 hour tour was R1800 or about $150. There was a surcharge for the weekends due to traffic around another $30. The cost does include pick up and drop off at your hotel in Ilan's Toyota SUV. We... More

Will I be collected and dropped back from my hotel? How long is the tour? What time does the tour start and complete? How much is the tour? How do I book from Australia? I will be there in May - what is the appropriate thing to wear? What toys are appropriate to bring to the tour? (can I buy these from Australia before I arrive- pencils, little koalas?)

The tour begins calmly at 9:30 am, and can last several hours according to the proposed activities, but until the early afternoon. You can contact Ian through its website, and will get you to the hotel. The cost is about... More
