Half-Day Soweto Tour with Beyond Touring & Albatros Travel.

Upon collection from your hotel, you shall travel to Soweto which is a sprawling cluster of townships on the south-western flank of Johannesburg.  From the footbridge of the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the largest on the continent, one can get a panoramic view of Soweto. Nelson Mandela’s humble little house in Orlando West, now called the Mandela House Museum, is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history relating to the world’s most famous former prisoner. The museum, a house comprising four inter-leading rooms, contains a rather eclectic assortment of memorabilia, paintings, and photographs of the Mandela family as well as a collection of honorary doctorates bestowed on Nelson Mandela from universities and institutions around the world.  You can also have a glimpse of the mansion belonging to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in an affluent part of Orlando West.  Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s house and the Sisulu residences are in the same neighborhood. Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial in Orlando West, built in memory of the people who died that day, 16 June 1976.

Upon the conclusion of the Half-Day Soweto Tour, you will return to your hotel in the early afternoon.
