Soweto Tour

Soweto is a symbol of the New South Africa, caught between old squatter misery and new prosperity, squalor and an upbeat lifestyle, it’s a vibrant city which still openly bears the scars of the Apartheid past and yet shows what’s possible in the New South Africa.

The Tour at a Glance

The first residents of what is now known as Soweto were located into the area called Klipspriut in 1905 following their relocation from “Coolietown” in the centre of Johannesburg as a result of an outbreak of bubonic plague. The Johannesburg City Council took the opportunity to establish racially segregated residential areas. Some residents were to be relocated to Alexandra Township (near the present day Sandton). This group comprised black, Indian and coloured families and they received freehold title to their land (this was subsequently reversed by the Apartheid Government). Only black families were located into Klipspruit and the housing was on a rental basis. Klipspruit was subsequently renamed Pimville.

Transfers, refreshments, an expert tour guide and separate driver, entrance fees to the Hector Pieterson and Mandela Visitors Centre, a drink (beer or soft) at a local shebeen or tavern, live entertainment performed by a local musical group at Kliptown informal settlement and visit to the various projects on the go, buffet lunch, visit to Soccer City.
