Soweto is the biggest location in Africa and it is there that great events in the history of this country took place. Some of the greatest present and former residences of Soweto include Winnie Mandela, the two Nobel Peace Prize winners, namely, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu whose homes happen to be also on the same street called Vilakazi. Established in 1904 Soweto is also one of the oldest settlements in South Africa with an estimated population of between 3 to 3, 5 millions people.

Hello, my name is Nathan. I am a native of Soweto and have been living there for the past 40 years of my life. I am a licensed tourist guide and am very passionate about my work. I specialize in tours to Soweto and Johannesburg City. I relate events as they happened and not what I think happened or learned about. I also run my own tour operator company for personalized and customized tours. My tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Soweto township. I am available from 7am - 11:30pm daily including public holidays. I cater for individuals and groups of up to 40 people. I have been working as a tourist guide for ten years now. All our tours are about the history, heritage, culture and struggles of Soweto and its residents. We begin our tours by browsing the city of Johannesburg which is the largest man made jungle in the world and also the largest city not built on a river, harbour or situated on a lake. We then proceed to the Apartheid Museum which is our first stop. Nothing captures the dark Apartheid years better than the Apartheid Museum. From there we drive to Soweto and enter using the Military entrance named so because of a military base across the road which was used to monitor the movement of Soweto residents during Apartheid era.
