Their family home is on Vilakazi street, the same street where the Mandelas lived, and the same street where Hector Pieterson was shot by police in the 1976 uprising against Apartheid. This is site of the famous photo by Sam Nzima of the fatally wounded Hector Pieterson being carried by Mbuyisa Makhubu.Trevor offers a truly unique perspective on the attractions and is probably the best qualified guide for Soweto and also a notable commentator on the state of South Africa today.

Contrast Tour Including Sandton, Alexandra, Johannesburg and Soweto

This tour begins with an in-depth visit to Sandton and Alexandra, the richest and poorest sections of the city. Riding through the opulence of Sandton, you will see how the most well-to-do residents live. As you leave, you will immediately enter Alexandra, called “Alex” by the residents. You will visit two shanty homes and interact with the residents to find out how they cope with their extreme poverty and the oppressive living conditions — no water and very cramped space. This tour through Sandton and Alexandra, Jo’burg city center and Soweto will show in stark reality the inequalities that still exist. As you visit the people, you will be amazed at how these two communities embody the freedom and reconciliation that was won at such a high price.
