Book Now With Activity Bridge
Soweto is an urban area of the city of Johannesburg, bordering the city’s mining belt in the south. Its name, an English syllabic abbreviation for South Western Townships, refers to its origins as a Black township under South Africa’s Apartheid government.
The population has historically been overwhelmingly black and some of the watershed events in the struggle against Apartheid occurred in this township.
On this tour we will discover Soweto and the surrounding area, driving past a hostel in Diepkloof, the well known Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Orlando Power Station, Winnie & Nelson Mandela’s former house (Entrance fees not included), Desmond Tutu’s House, the Hector Peterson Memorial (Entrance fees included), a quick stop at a well known restaurant, a shebeen, the Regina Mundi Church, Maponya Shopping Mall, Kliptown, Walter Sisulu Freedom Square and Aldorado Park.
Afterwards we will head towards the Apartheid Museum. Once there you will have the opportunity to discover the history of the Apartheid era on your own
