More about Soweto VIRTUAL Tour

I will take you on a virtual history tour of Soweto where I am born and raised also where political Icons lived fighting against Apartheid fighting regime. Using digital photographs, you will get an idea about everyday life in the townships, local talents, and nowadays youth culture. Starting at the Hector Pietersen Museum, we will talk first about the Soweto uprising that transpired in 1976, which was one the downfall of apartheid. I will then introduce you to the famous house of Nelson Mandela in Vilakazi Street, built-in 1945 where he lived until he was imprisoned for 27 years. We will then have a conversation about Archbishop Desmond Tutu. I will share many personal stories about my family's generations, how apartheid had an impact in each and every one of us, and how it has changed our lives. Born free's are a generation born during and after 1994. They symbolize freedom, the rainbow nation and a new inspired South Africa. I will then compare the two generations and explain the challenges in today's society.

Opinions On Soweto VIRTUAL Tour

What the locals say about Soweto VIRTUAL Tour.

Catherine Jirak

Our tour of Soweto was so enlightening. There was so much I learned and so many beautiful and interesting places visited (virtually of course!) Our guide Sipho was knowledgeable and passionate it was a very intimate tour with only a few family members so we really felt like we had our own private tour. Thank you again, and I hope one day we will be able to get to SA in person to experience its beauty and culture! Cathy

Sipho was a great guide on this virtual tour! I visited South Africa in 2018 but did not do a township tour at that time. I found this virtual tour interesting and fast moving. I learned a lot of things and was never bored. Sipho has very up-to-date information from people in the community. I felt like I was getting an "insider's view" of Soweto, not the filtered view that we get through most media outlets. I also appreciated his young, fresh, positive and enthusiastic perspective. I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in South Africa, urban housing, black liberation movements, and young people's liberation movements.
