          We didn't stay at the hostel, we only did their Soweto bike tour, so our review is based purely on that experience. We booked the 4 hour bike tour through Soweto for R530 (quite a lot of money for tours in SA) and it was...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!

          Hi We are arriving in August in J'burg for 2 nights before driving out to Kruger and thinking of booking to stay at Lebo's. Would you say it is safe to drive there and park in the area? We will do the 4 hour cycling tour and would like to visit the aparthied museum so would be driving in and out of the area. Alternatively we could stay in the Sandton area which seems to be recommended. Just want to make sure its quite safe - we are a couple in late 20's with rental car? Thanks your help would be appreciated! Uma
