Discover Soweto with Rhinocarhire: Navigating South Africa's Vibrant Heartbeat

A sprawling township on the outskirts of Johannesburg, Soweto stands as a vibrant testament to South Africa's history and resilient spirit. With its pulsating energy and rich cultural tapestry, Soweto beckons travelers to explore its depths. Let Rhinocarhire guide you on a journey through the streets and stories of Soweto.

Driving in Soweto: Tips and Insights

  • Driving Orientation: Like the rest of South Africa, Soweto follows left-hand driving. If you're from a right-hand drive country, be cautious and adjust accordingly.

  • Road Conditions: The main roads in Soweto are generally well-maintained. However, some side streets might be a bit uneven, so vigilance is essential.

  • Parking: Secure parking areas are available, especially near prominent attractions. It's advised to utilize these facilities and avoid leaving valuables in plain sight.

Choosing the Right Vehicle for Soweto

  • Urban Navigation: For the bustling streets of Soweto, consider opting for a compact sedan from Rhinocarhire's diverse fleet.

Must-visit Spots and Routes in Soweto

  • Vilakazi Street: The only street in the world that has been home to two Nobel Prize winners - Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. A drive down this road is a walk through history.

  • Hector Pieterson Museum: Commemorating the Soweto Uprising of 1976, this museum is a powerful reminder of the struggles faced during apartheid.

  • Orlando Towers: A Soweto landmark, these once cooling towers are now a hotspot for adventure sports and offer panoramic views of the township.

Key Recommendations for First-timers in Soweto

  • Local Cuisine: Embark on a culinary journey by sampling local dishes at various eateries. Don't miss the traditional "shisa nyama" (barbecue) experience.
