The room and kitchen was cramped but everything was clean. Great place to stay if you want to get the whole wonderful Soweto experience. Food, staff and security was great also. One of the few accommodation options available if you want to stay in Soweto.

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
