The fascinating, colorful Soweto. If you want to see the real Soweto take the Lebo's 4 hour bike ride to learn about the past and present of Soweto. We were a small group of 7 that got to be led by Ms Z and Brilliante...More

Yes, I would contact the company. From what I understand they will rent more tuk tuks for a large group. Hope you get to go. It is fantastic!

While we stayed there, Lebo's allowed guests with a car to park inside the locked gate at night! Also, Lebo is community leader and everyone respects him (and his guests) by extension. You will be safe the whole time you... More
