3 days / 2 nights - Johannesburg, Soweto

Tour overview:
Johannesburg, South Africa's largest city with ca. 4.5 million inhabitants was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold. Spend three informative days in this city including an in-depth visit to Soweto, the township associated with the struggle against Apartheid and the 1976 uprising.

Day 1 - Arrive Johannesburg
Arrive Johannesburg, where you are met and transferred to your hotel. Rest of the day is at leisure.

Day 2 - Johannesburg - Soweto
Morning at leisure. Afternoon Soweto Tour. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack. Inside Soweto, visit the Kliptown Open Air Museum where delegates met in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter, now the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights and the South African Constitution. Your journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. The next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, where you discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death. Pass by Mandela House for an optional visit this fascinating little museum (own account). Finally we take you past the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African Story. (B)

Day 3 - Depart Johannesburg
Transfer to the airport for your departure flight. (B)
