Soweto Tour

There are few places in the world whose name is more synonymous with modern-day freedom struggles than South Africa’s township of Soweto. Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African story. The Soweto tour is a cultural rollercoaster that will give you a firm overview of the tumultuous and inspirational history of Johannesburg and South Africa. Brace yourself for an eye-opening and emotional visit to the Hector Pieterson Museum, a space dedicated to the commemoration of high school students who led a peaceful march that quickly transformed into a mass murder. Take a drive or stroll along Soweto’s visitor friendly Vilakazi Street, the only street in the world to have housed two Nobel Prize winners. Stop at the original Soweto home of Nelson Mandela, the former ‘safe haven’ for the Mandela’s and their friends. Complete your Soweto tour with a visit to the small but significant Kliptown Museum, which pays tribute to the 3,000 plus oppressed South Africans who formed part of the Congress of the People in 1955.
