You will explore South Africa's turbulent past and bright future as you travel from Johannesburg to Soweto. Your expert guide will detail the trials and tribulations faced by the people of this area during the resistance to the apartheid and answer any questions you may have. The sprawling township of Soweto spawned from a forced settlement in 1904 that aimed to segregate Johannesburg's races, but it is now a leader in politics, fashion, music, dance, and language in the region. While exploring the history of Soweto you will see the former homes of two Nobel Prize winners, the largest hospital in Africa, the Regina Mundi Church, and the Hector Peterson Memorial, which is dedicated to one of the early casualties of the Soweto Uprising that saw more than 500 people killed.

This astounding half-day trip will open your eyes to how apartheid shaped South Africa and its people. You will be shocked and inspired on this historic journey that will change the way you think about freedom.
