Half Day Soweto Tour

A must whilst in Johannesburg is a half-day tour of SOWETO. The South Western Township was created during the apartheid era to keep the black people out of the City Centre. A community spirit was created and now many people choose to live there - some 3-5 million people inhabit Soweto.

Most of the population are middle-income earners, living in small box shaped, brick houses. 10% of the population live in poverty but in contrast Soweto also has the highest concentration of millionaires in the country. Soweto is an excellent example of the general uplifting of the poorer areas all over South Africa, even in the shanty towns you will find running water, electricity and refuse collectors - you will be amazed at the overall tidiness and cleanliness.

On the tour you will visit a shantytown, perhaps have a drink in a local bar, you may talk to the locals and may be invited into their homes. You will see Freedom Square and Barragwanath hospital (the largest in the world).

The Hector Pieterson Museum was established to preserve the history and memory of all those who were involved in the Soweto uprising of 16 June 1976. The museum is named after the 13-year old Hector Pieterson, who was among the first student victims to die from police shootings. The very graphic black and white photos are very moving.

You've got see it to believe it... Winnie Mandela's fortress is a fine example of high security! Soweto has the only street in the world where two Nobel Peace Prize Winner's live. Nelson Mandela's house is now a museum (currently closed as Nelson and Winnie cannot agree on who has the rights to the proceeds), but Desmond Tutu still lives there.

Note:

Your accommodation will be dorm style accommodation. An upgrade to a single or twin/double room is possible at an additional fee.
