Overview

From the dusty streets of Motsoaledi informal settlement to the vibrant cultural hub of Vilakazi Street and the somber halls of the Apartheid Museum; you’ll get a true sense of the soul of the city of Soweto and events that shaped South Africa’s fight for freedom and equality. Experience the vibrant cultural diversity of South Africa and learn more about its turbulent history on this full-day tour.

Soweto is a ‘city within a city’ and home to over 2 million people. It was the epicenter of the struggle for freedom and equality during the most stormy years in South Africa but today it’s a vibrant city and the heart and soul of Johannesburg. The Apartheid Museum is a one-of-a-kind museum that showcases South Africa in the turbulent years of the apartheid era.
