The city that did not tolerate division and could not resist rejuvenation and reinvention

Share in the hustle and bustle of township life whilst we delve deeper into the psyche of our past. We discuss the revolutionary history visiting the sites that played a pivotal role.  Freedom Square with its vibrant market, the Soweto Hotel and the very small yet fascinating museum telling the story of the launching of the Freedom Charter.

Regina Mundi Church was a place of sanctuary during the youth uprisings in 1976.  When you enter this humble Catholic church, it is with the knowledge that 5000 youngsters sought refuge within the walls from the bullets of the police.  The political rallies held here faintly echo through the aisles and yet the atmosphere is one of peace.

The June 16 Memorial Acre focuses on the routes used by the students and complements the narrative of the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum.

This extensive tour of Soweto is ended by visiting the Sowetan home of Nelson Mandela.
