Property Description

Welcome to LEBO’S SOWETO! We offer a unique and personal experience of Soweto. Integrated with the community around us we invite day as well as overnight guests to be part of this vibrant township. Our day guests can book one of the interactive tours by walk, bicycle or tuk-tuk as well as relaxing with a home cooked lunch or dinner in the outdoors in our community park and around the fire and boma. An overnight experience at the Backpackers Lodge offers the budget traveller a choice of accommodation – camping, dormitory and private En Suite rooms. Home cooked meals served by the fire and the opportunity to explore Soweto on their own by safely strolling around and mingling with the locals or on an organized tour conducted by local tour guides. Community volunteering, self-guided tours and free bicycle hire is also available for the curious traveller staying longer.

Loved my stay here! If you’re going to Joburg, this is the best hostel. Great tours, great staff and great place to meet other travellers. Only negative is load shedding at annoying times but this was out of the hands of the hostel and not a super big issue. Shout out to Linda!

This place is truly special. We got their late from Kruger, and on arrival they asked if we wanted dinner, tonight which was a local dish made by a great chef, we had it every night and it changes. The room we stayed was a private beds were really comfy. They offer so many types of tours, we did the 4 hour with Lerato, he was amazing in really painting the picture of Soweto, the staff really make you feel at home which is exactly what you want while traveling, we only wish hour stay was longer.

One of our favourite places to visit in South Africa. The staff are so friendly, the food and atmosphere are amazing! We were lucky enough to try a Braii and did the full day bike tour which I highly recommend - we learnt so much about the history of Soweto and South Africa. We can’t wait to come back!
