This National Heritage Site reveals the ills of the Apartheid regime and embraces the new democratic South Africa at the same time. The old part of the prison was demolished to give birth to the Constitution Court that protects our democracy and human rights.
After spending time at Constitution hill we will drive through Braamfontein and pass through the famous Nelson Mandela bridge. While we proceed into the inner part of Johannesburg city. A tour around the mining district and we get to learn more about the city of gold ''Jozi''
Our last stop for the Johannesburg tour before we proceed to Soweto is at FNB Stadium. Built out of the shape of an African calabash this is the biggest stadium in Africa.
There is no way we can do a Soweto tour without taking pictures with the ''welcome to Soweto sign'' really it's a must you need people to actually believe you that you were in Soweto
As we drive through Soweto one can not help to notice the major lifestyle contrast next to a big mention you would see a really small house. This just shows that the life of Sowetens is very diverse from one's family income to another to the culture and heritage. As we drive through Diepkloof you will notice the beautiful fancy houses we have actually nicknamed this part of Soweto '' the Beverly Hills of Soweto''
We are now passing through the biggest hospital in Africa Baragwanath hospital. Initially built as a military hospital today Baragwanath hospital is a public hospital that is funded by the South African government, it is one of the best hospitals in Africa definitely not a fancy hospital but it has some of the best specialists in the country.
As we get deeper with our Soweto tour we take a quick detour to the informal settlements. The aim of our Soweto tour is to show you the good, the bad and the ugly of the township. One can call the informal settlement ''the ugly of the township''. The informal settlements are the worst living conditions in the township but so rich in love the best smiles I have seen are from the children that live in this informal settlement.
Definitely one of the major highlights of Soweto. These 2 beautifully painted tower draws attraction to the township. It's a must that you stop by and take a picture. They also offer bungee jumping at these towers so if you are an adrenaline junkie this is your place.
By now we have crossed over to one of the most famous streets in the world. Vilakazi Street is the only street in the world that has had 2 Noble Prize Peace Winners living in it namely Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu.
Definitely a tourist hotspot. The former home to father of the nation Nelson Mandela.
By this time you are definitely hungry. Let's enjoy African cuisine at its best !!!!
Another museum that portrays the horrors of the Apartheid regime. However, Hector Peterson museum remembers the school children of June 16 1976. A sad history indeed but it definitely has shaped our future lest we foget
