Tours such as Soweto tour, we enter Soweto via the upmarket area called Diepkloof Extension where some of the houses can cost in millions. In contrast we then visit the large hostel in the area which used to accommodate single gender migrant labourers. We drive through the ‘Twin Towers’ which used to supply electricity to the north of Johannesburg. The tour passes the beautiful Mall named after the first black millionaire Richard Maponya. Clients get a chance to walk around Kliptown squatter camp which was developed in 1903. Today the residents are still living in a poverty stricken environment.
A highlight of the visit is a delicious lunch at a well run restaurant patronised by both tourist and locals alike offering typical township fare including dombolo (streamed bread), morogo (spinach), umqhusho (Khosa samp & beans – Nelson Mandela’s favourite dish) and a variety of meats, salads and vegetables.
After lunch trips takes clients to Orlando West and Hector Peterson Memorial. Clients visit the fascinating museum which is the state of the art multi-media centre depicting scenes leading up to the student uprising of 1976 and eventually a transition to democracy in 1994. The trip drive through Vilakazi Street which is the only street in the world where two Nobel price winners lived, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
The last stop is the biggest Catholic Church in South Africa, Reginna Mundi Church. The church is the focal point of much of the struggle in the 70s and the 80s and is known as ‘The Parliament of Soweto.’We visit more suburbs and housing types and styles before reluctantly leaving Soweto with a feeling of hope for the future.
