We stayed 1 night during our trip. We made an impressive bike ride trough Soweto with a Soweto-guide. And we had a delicious meal in the garden. It is all beautiful and cozy outside. Friendly and helpful employees!

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!
