Soweto Tour

A visit to Soweto will change your view of townships and you will come away feeling uplifted and enthusiastic.

South West Townships is the name given to the area south west of Johannesburg, famously known all over the world as "Soweto". A name synonymous with "struggle" and now with "hope" and "the future". One only has to talk to the residents to know this is true.

Soweto emerged in the early 1900's to house the masses that flocked to Johannesburg from all over Africa and the world to work in the gold mines. It is where a community fought against injustice and oppression.

A Tour of Soweto includes a visit to an informal settlement where residents welcome guests into their homes and talk about their lives and their hope for the future. We pass the largest hospital in the world, the Chris Hani Baragwaneth Hospital. Visit the Regina Mundi Catholic Church, which was most significant in the 1960's and is known as the spiritual centre of the anti-apartheid struggle. We then drive through the only road in the world where two Nobel Peace Prize winners lived. They are Bishop Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela. Mandela's house is now a museum with an in-house guide. The tour passes Winnie's mansion and goes on to the Hector Peterson Memorial, site of the June 1976 riots. A drive through Kliptown "expensive" not "extension" can be seen where some of Soweto's self-made millionaires live.

Lunch at any of the traditional restaurants is a must, the most famous being Wandies. Once a Shebeen, now the in-place for people from Johannesburg and Soweto.
