Day Tour Itinerary
- We’ll start off at Satyagraha House - the house of Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi. Then, it’s over to Houghton for a drive past the Mandela home (did you know that it’s here that Madiba spent the last days of his life?), which is still a private residence. Our next stop is in Rivonia at Liliesleaf Farm - the place that played an important role in the liberation movement.
- After digesting all those historical facts, we head over to the Rosebank Art & Craft Market for a little shopping and some lunch (own expense). From there, we take a drive to the Apartheid Museum, a beacon of South African hope, showing the world that the country has come to terms with its past and is working towards a better future.
- With this, it’s important to remember that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles, so this is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. Also, children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.
- AAfter the museum, the tour continues to the South of Soweto where we’ll get to see iconic places like FNB Stadium, the Diepkloof area with its famous ‘Matchbox’ houses and Chris Baragwanath Hospital. Next are the colourful Cooling Towers, and the tour of Soweto South ends at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown where 3000 people gathered in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter … something that now forms the basis of SA’s constitution.
- From there, we continue to Hector Pieterson Museum in Orlando West with our last stop being the vibey Vilakazi Street. It’s a famous street in Soweto and is the only street in the world to have had two Nobel Peace Prize winners as residents, namely Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.
- Some important info to remember would be that this is a full day tour, that starts around 09:30 and ends at 17:00.
