Highlights / General details
Soweto is a cluster of townships, on the south-western flank of Johannesburg and was created in the 1930's. It is the largest black urban settlement in Africa with a rich political history.
From the footbridge of the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the largest on the continent, one can get a panoramic view of Soweto. Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial in Orlando West, built in memory of the people who died 16 June 1976. The Mandela House Museum is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history. You can also have a glimpse of the mansion belonging to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu's house and the Sisulu residences which are all in the same neighborhood.
