Soweto Tour

You know the name. It's a legend. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack.

Begin your tour of Soweto with a trip to the Kliptown Open Air Museum to learn all about this dark period in South Africa’s history. Continue on to Regina Mondi Church, the historic meeting place of many formerly banned political parties and the Hector Pieterson Memorial, unveiled by Nelson Mandela in 1992.

Your next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death, we pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum (own account). Finally we take you past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final.
