Soweto is probably unlike any suburb you’ve seen, yet the history of the freedom struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African story
You know the name. It’s a legend. Soweto, an acronym for South Western Township, is home to more than two million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community that's lacking in the walled, elitist northern suburbs.
In Soweto, you'll visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots that led to his death. You'll pass Mandela House and have time to visit this fascinating little museum (for your own account) before continuing your journey to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of banned political parties. Finally, see the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final. This magnificent stadium is now nicknamed ‘The Calabash’ for its resemblance to the African pot.
