Amazing Race through Soweto

In the early light of a sun-kissed  autumn Johannesburg morning, seven teams converged at the Apartheid Museum, ready to embark on a day brimming with excitement and cultural immersion. With coloured scarves fluttering in the breeze and cooler boxes stocked with essentials, they eagerly awaited the start of their journey into the heart of Soweto with a guide in tow.

The day began with a burst of energy as teams received their first clue alongside a much-needed caffeine fix.  With adrenaline coursing through their veins, they set off towards their first destination: the Oppenheimer Botanical Gardens. Scaling the tower, they were greeted by Soweto views, setting the stage for the adventures that lay ahead.

Next on the agenda was Kliptown, where the vibrant rhythm of gumboot dancing echoed through the streets. Teams embraced the challenge with gusto, impressing judges and spreading joy as they distributed groceries to grateful residents. It was a heartwarming reminder of the power of community and connection.

As the day progressed, teams indulged in sweet treats at the Soweto Creamery before delving into the world of herbal medicine, gaining insight into traditional healing practices. Each stop offered a unique glimpse into the rich tapestry of Soweto's African culture and heritage. 

The climax of the day came at the Orlando Towers, where the aroma of sizzling shisinyama filled the air. Amidst laughter and shared stories, teams reflected on their journey, grateful for the bonds forged and memories made.

Behind the scenes, So Where To Adventures orchestrated every detail, ensuring a seamless and enriching experience for all involved. From coordinating logistics to crafting engaging challenges, their expertise was instrumental in making the day a resounding success.


As the sun dipped below the horizon, tired but fulfilled teams made their way home, their hearts full and their spirits uplifted. For the participants, it was a day to remember - a celebration of adventure, culture, and the spirit of giving back.
