The South Western Township was created during the apartheid era and now many people choose to live there - some 3-5 million people inhabit Soweto.Most of the population are middle income earners, living in small box shaped brick houses. Only 10% of the population live in poverty but in contrast Soweto also has the highest concentration of millionaires in the country.On the tour you will visit a shantytown.The shacks have electricity, there is running water and the council even collects rubbish once a week! You will talk to the locals and may be invited into their homes or schools. You will see Barragwanath Hospital (the largest in the world), the local market and the largest taxi rank in Africa. The Hector Pieterson Museum was established to pre-serve the history and the memory of all those who were involved in the Soweto uprising of 16 June 1976. Soweto has the only street in the world where two Nobel Peace Prize winners live. Nelson Mandela's house is now a Museum, but Desmund Tutu still lives here. Learn much more about the history and what it is really like to live in Soweto (past and present) from our guides.The tour can be booked on arrival in Johannesburg.Departs daily (except Sunday afternoon) @ 08:30 & 13:30Soweto tour ?60 per person Sunway's environmental policy applies to everyone travelling with us and allows us to experience the lands we are visiting but also have a positive influence on the communities and ultimately the natural environment of Southern Africa. Our tour leaders will help you with the implementation of these policies, many of which will seem like common sense.All of our tours feature at least one visit to a local community project such as: village visits, animal rehab projects, or employment of local guides. These local initiatives help to maintain local cultures and also sustain the ideals of wildlife conservation. As a Sunway traveller it gives you the chance to meet local people and see how tourism is benefiting Africa.Tourism, goodwill and conservation all work together and Sunway aims to provide the delicate balance at all times!EDUCATIONAL RESPONSIBILITY:Sunway operates a number of tours each year for underprivileged children. We believe that they are Africa's future and that environmental education is important. We take groups of children to national parks offering them the chance to see the benefits of conservation, as well as prospects for their future employment in conservation or the tourism industry. Should you wish to contribute to these trips by donation or sponsorship please speak to your guide, or the Sunway office.
