Why the travelers book this tour because Soweto represents the hard-fought struggle against apartheid. We look beyond the bloody legend of the 16 June 1976 uprising and behind the hardened face of resistance politics, to the core Soweto- its people. Soweto is about people leading their lives - working and commuting, celebrating and grieving, see the poverty of an informal settlement shack and hostels in contrast with upper class suburbs of Diepkloof in Soweto. this tour promises a warm experience of this fascinating place.
