from destination experts
Many South Africans gave much or all to achieve a democratic South Africa and this journey shares some of the pain and struggle of those heroes
This is a fascinating journey, filled with tales of bravery and sadness, but ultimately it’s a story with the right ending. Your freedom tour of Johannesburg begins at the Hector Pieterson Museum, where you'll start to unravel the cause of the devastating riots of 1976. Then you'll travel past Mandela House, where you have the option of visiting this small museum (for your own account).
You'll visit the Regina Mundi church, site of so many of the underground meetings of banned political parties. Stand there and feel the tension, picture the intensity, the strain on the faces of those brave souls committed at any cost to changing the way of life of a nation.
You'll have lunch in a restaurant in Soweto (for your own account), before visiting the legendary Apartheid Museum.
