Soweto Tours: Getting to know a world famous township

When you hear the word township, what is the first place that comes to mind? Surely it must be Soweto. Found just outside of Johannesburg, Soweto is South Africa’s best-known township and it has been home to many legends over the years. Soweto tourism is booming, and if you are going to be spending a few days in the Johannesburg area and you are looking for a really memorable way to spend your time, then a Soweto tour is arguably one of the more interesting options to go with.

Soweto is an urban settlement and in 2008 it was home to around 1.3 million people. Today’s statistics say that the figure now stands at roughly 3.5 million. Soweto has a rather youthful history with the township being created in 1930 as an act of separation. Today Soweto still bears the marks left by the Apartheid regime but it certainly does not hide away from the fact that this is a part of its history. In fact, much of the history of this township now plays a role in the tourism that it plays host to. There are many tourist attractions in Soweto such as Vilakazi Street, which was once home to Nelson Mandela and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu, the Hector Pieterson Museum and the Credo Mutwa Cultural Village.

Guests to Soweto are greeted by the vibrancy and the enthusiasm of a community wanting to show people what life in the township is actually like. It is not just the Soweto tourist attractions that have people wanting to visit the township, but the atmosphere of the township also plays a big role.

Soweto is by no means a poor township. There are some homes within the township that sell for well over 2 million South African Rands. And a lot of the development in this area has to do with the increase in the number of tourists who visit. Soweto tours are now offered by some of the best-known touring companies in Johannesburg such as MoAfrika.

We offer a number of tours that will take you into the heart of Soweto. Usually, a tour of Soweto falls under the things to do in Johannesburg category, with tours often combining time in the city with time in the township. But MoAfrika offers many tours that focus solely on time in the township, as there is always so much going on here.

Many people see Soweto as a city of extremes as there is a combination of poverty and riches in the area. Overall, Soweto is flourishing in many ways.

When you go on tour with MoAfrika we have a few interesting tour packages for you to choose from.
