Well lucky for there's a lot to experience. How about after the Red bus city tour you go for Apartheid Museum and Soweto Township tour. I wouls suggest that you set aside the whole day for this experience. There is culture, history and heritage exploration on this vibrant place. You can also have a night tour and experience the calmness and tranquality of this otherwise energetic and "chaotic" place.

Hello, for night life, you can go to Sandton, the Sands is good for music and vibe, also Montecasino, look at Vacca Matta and the whole area which is about 10 minutes from sandton CBD is busy at night. For other suggestions for day tours, the Cradle of Humankind, Pretoria with the Diamond mine, Walk with Elephants and Monkey sanctuary - depends on what you would like to see - Zulu and other ethnic dancing at the Cultural village is very popular.
