Soweto Ready to visit a city within a city? Ready to experience photo genetic, bustling Soweto? Let’s go!

In Orlando West we visit Vilakazi Street- drive past the former home of Nelson Mandela and past the home of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. You will have an opportunity to read about the Soweto uprising on 16 June 1976. On that tragic day an innocent little boy called Hector Peterson gave up his life and kick-started the liberation of South Africa. We continue our trip with a tour of the Regina Mundi Church. The church was a meeting point    during the early times of the anti-apartheid movement. We continue our tour driving into one of the shanty towns where you get to interact with some of the locals.
