Apartheid Museum

A visit to this renowned museum is second to none in exemplifying the rise and fall of apartheid. It narrates a touching story of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, beginning in 1948 right through to the liberation in 1994 when Nelson Mandela was elected president of the Republic.

FNB Stadium for Photo Opportunity (Outside)

Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication

In the heart of Soweto, is Kliptown, South Africa’s first township entertainment explosion centre, the very first of its kind eMzansi (South Africa). Visit the locals and interact with them as they live their daily lives, doing business just to get by. Walter Sisulu Square embraces a unique historical background, South African culture at its best, mingled up with modern urbanisation, trendsetting what South Africa is best known.

Pass Regina Mundi

Located in the middle of Soweto, in Rockville, in the neighborhood of Moroka, from afar you're greeted by the A-shaped exterior of the building which is quite ordinary in design. The church first wrote its name in South Africa's history books during apartheid, when it opened its doors to anti-apartheid groups and provided shelter to activists. It was during the June 16, 1976, student uprising, protesting students fled to Regina Mundi from Orlando Stadium to escape the police's bullets and teargas canisters. Bullet holes are still visible in the church ceiling and damaged marble stand provide tangible evidence of the violence of these police raids and the ensuring rush to evacuate the building.

Sakhumzi Restaurant

Mandela Museum

Commonly referred to as Mandela House, the house is on Vilakazi Street, Orlando West, Soweto, where Nelson Mandela lived from 1946 to 1962. It is located at number 8115, at the corner of Vilakazi and Ngakane streets, a short distance up the road from Tutu House, the home of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. Mandela donated the house to the Soweto Heritage Trust of which he was the founder on 1st September 1997, to be run as a museum. It was declared a National Heritage Site in 1999.

Hector Pieterson Memorial

This memorial is just a few hundred metres from the spot where Peterson, a 12-year-old child, was gunned down by police during the Soweto Student Uprising on 16th June 1976. The memorial re-enacts the events that led up to the shooting, as a day-in-the-life-of-South-Africa, a day that was to radically change the manner in which South Africa was governed, and fundamentally change the course of history. This memorial was built to honour the youth who gave their lives in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
