An adventure that not every South African would have the guts to do! {Photos}


Not something on your everyday bucket list – but a definite must do for the brave.

Soweto, South Africa

I was hosting a photographer friend over recently visiting from Spain. He has an adventure seeking soul, so I wanted to give him a thrilling experience of what life in Johannesburg was really all about. What better way to show him what the traffic was like by playing dodge ‘em with Soweto taxis whilst on quad bikes?

So I contacted the guys from Naledi Backpackers in Soweto and put together a unique tour that showcased all the best tourists attractions that Soweto had to offer.


En route, Google directed me to “Soweta”. I found this pretty strange but laughed it off and thought Google was having a spell check moment.



Both nervous and excited, I had no idea what to expect.

On arrival we were greeted by Naledi’s friendly staff and the community who assisted us with all safety checks before departing on our 6 hour journey that was about to turn into our most memorable experience we have had of South Africa.

We thought we would share this sort after experience with you. Pictures do after all communicate a 1000 messages!
