Soweto Township

Johannesburg, Gauteng

Soweto – an acronym for South-Western Township – provides visitors with a unique cultural experience. It is the largest black residential area in South Africa, a product of the apartheid government’s policy of segregation. A lively, culturally rich area on the periphery of Johannesburg, it has a rich political history – it was a site of struggle in the fight for freedom in South Africa.

The area has been home to a number of political, sporting and social personalities, among them former president Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. Soweto’s historical significance and its vibrant buzz make it a must-see for visitors looking for more than a wildlife and nature experience in South Africa.
