Discover ‘the birthplace of the struggle’ with Soweto day tours

Even though we are not proud of it, apartheid is a major part of South African history. What we can be proud of, however, is the fact that we have a nation that will not be kept down. We have fought our way out of oppression and now stand tall as a united nation with a bright future. Many heroes were required to achieve this, and while it was a nationwide movement, Soweto is commonly seen as the birthplace of the apartheid struggle. Our Soweto day tours will take you on an unforgettable journey through this amazing town. Engage in this melting pot of colourful cultures, where hope and freedom is in the air and people are proud of their heritage.

Soweto, short for South Western Townships, is an urban area in the greater metropolis of Johannesburg, Gauteng. On one of 37 West Adventures' Soweto day tours you will be taken to many areas of significance throughout this town, like the Regina Church, a famous refuge from the State police, and the homes of Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. You can also pay your respects at the Hector Pieterson Memorial and visit Freedom Square.

Two important museums you will visit that showcase the history are the Nelson Mandela National Museum and the Hector Pieterson Museum. The former is located in Nelson Mandela’s old house and is filled with his personal artefacts. The latter is situated two blocks away from where Hector Pieterson was shot and killed. The museum is named in his honour and became one of the first museums in Soweto when it opened in on 16 June 2002.
