13:00-Half day tour of Pretoria. Discover the administrative capital known as "Jacaranda City". Pretoria is a city of tree-lined avenues, fascinating architecture and historical monuments such as the Paul Kruger House. In the heart of the city centre, this modest home was built in 1883 and today contains interesting souvenirs of Oom Paul's life, the founder of the Afrikaans Nation. The Union Buildings, seat of executive government and symbol of the new South Africa, feature a nine-metre-tall statue of the former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, erected shortly after his death on 5 December 2013. The Voortrekker Monument, rising like a sentinel in the south of Pretoria, is an essential piece of the puzzle in understanding the Afrikaner people. The friezes explain their entire history from the Great Trek up to the Battle of Blood River and the forming of the Boer Republics. If you are visiting in October, you'll experience the best of all the purple jacarandas in bloom along most of the city’s streets. (Optional rates: D1:Pretoria City Tour HD PM)

D2: Johannesburg
Day Tour: Jo`burg, Soweto and Apartheid Museum FD(o)
 -Breakfast
09:00-Orientate yourself with greater Johannesburg on a full-day tour of Johannesburg, Soweto and the Apartheid Museum. Your explorations begin in the heart of bustling Johannesburg, the third largest city in Africa, as you seek out landmark buildings such as the Hillbrow Tower, one of the tallest towers in Africa, the sky-scraping Ponte City, Sentech and Carlton Centre Tower and the multi-million rand Nelson Mandela Bridge. South of city you will find the Apartheid Museum that showcases the notorious system of racial discrimination that became synonymous with South Africa from 1948 until 1994 when the country’s first fully democratic elections were held. The museum has two entrances labelled ‘white’ and ‘non-white’ giving visitors a tiny taste of some of apartheid’s prejudiced rules. More serious overtones to this system of racial classification can be observed inside the museum with harrowing personal testimonials and historical facts. Your tour rounds off with highlights of Soweto such as the match box houses, FNB “Soccer city” Stadium, Hector Pieterson Memorial, Vilakazi Street and Mandela House.

D3: Johannesburg
Day Tour: Mandela FD(o)
 -Breakfast
09:00-Collection from your hotel for a full-day tour tracing the early life of South Africa’s most iconic leader, Nelson Mandela, from the time he arrived in Johannesburg to the infamous Rivonia Trial that led to his 27 years of imprisonment. The tour follows a roughly chronological order of important events in his life beginning with Mandela Yard in Alexandra where he rented a room while studying and working as a clerk in a law firm. Next is Constitution Hill, a human rights precinct that acknowledges the horrors of the past while embracing the promise of the future and also incorporates the Old Fort Prison, a notorious jail where political prisoners including Mandela where incarcerated. The tour concludes with a visit to Liliesleaf Farm, widely regarded as the birthplace of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), the armed wing of the ANC. It was here that a police raid on 11 July 1963 resulted in the Rivonia Treason Trials and eventual incarceration of many senior ANC leaders, including Nelson Mandela. Return transfer to your hotel included. (Optional rates: D3:Mandela FD)

(Optional rates: D5:Lion and Safari Park HD PM)
08:00-Pick up from your hotel for a half day tour of the Cradle of Humankind. Just outside of the fast-paced city of Johannesburg lies one of the most important archaeological sites for human evolution studies, the aptly named Cradle of Humankind. It is one of South Africa’s eight Heritage Sites and consists of a network of limestone subterranean caves that hold a rich hominoid fossil record. The caves, including the Sterkfontein, Swartkrans and Kromdraai, tell the story of what the world was like when our human ancestors were evolving some two to three million years ago, and lend credence to the theory that humans and their ancestors evolved in Africa first. In 1947 one of the first major discoveries was made at the Sterkfontein Caves of a pre-human skull dating back more than 2-million years. The skull was classified as Plesianthropus transvaalensis and hence shorted to ‘Mrs Ples’. Aside from fossil displays the Cradle of Humankind also includes a variety of other activities and facilities. Transfer back to your hotel at the conclusion of the tour.
