Description

A walking tour about the history of two towns in Soweto, Orlando East/West where political icons lived during Apartheid, fighting against the regime.

The tour is full of photography opportunities & interacting with the locals you'll get the opportunity to take some great pictures. By walking through the streets of Soweto you will also get an idea about the people's lifestyle, local music & nowadays youth culture.

Itinerary

Starting at Hector Pietersen Museum, visiting the famous house of Nelson Mandela in Vilakazi Street. Walking through Orlando East, the first formal settlement of Soweto before visiting Orlando Stadium, home of Soweto football giants the Orlando Pirates. We're also going local by riding a minibus taxi to our last stop at the Orlando Towers.

Had a great experience with the tour guide. Thoroughly explained everything in detail about how all the places we toured have a significant amount of importance in Johannesburg and gave me a proper authentic experience of Johannesburg.
