Half-Day Soweto Township Tour
Book Now With Activity Bridge
This Half Day Tour offers excellent insight into this fast growing and fascinating suburb of South Africa.
- Experience a fascinating glimpse of bustling neighbourhood life. Soweto is the most metropolitan township in the country – setting trends in politics, fashion, music, dance and language.
- Drive past two former Nobel Prize winners’ previous residences
- The Hector Peterson memorial; dedicated to one of the first casualties of the Soweto uprising of 16 June, 1976, when over 500 people were killed as they protested over the imposition of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in township schools.
Soweto is home to more than 2 million people. Soweto dwellers have a wonderful sense of community, despite living in crowded and often chaotic conditions – something which the ordered, elitest suburbs ironically lack. Visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and explore the causes of the tragic riots which led to this death.
You will have the option of a visit to Mandela House – a fascinating museum [ costs for own account ]
Continue to the Regina Mundi Church, which was the site of secret underground meetings of the banned political parties during the years of Apartheid.
You will end your tour with a drive past the largest stadium in Africa – Soccer City. Soccer City is also known as the Calabash and was the host of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
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.
