Soweto Tour
After breakfast depart on a tour of Soweto:

You know the name. It's a legend. SOWETO, acronym for South Western Township, is home to over 2 million people, who, despite living in crowded and chaotic conditions, have a tangible sense of community, one which ironically, the ordered, walled, elitist northern suburbs lack. Inside Soweto, you visit the Hector Pieterson Museum, and discover the cause of the tragic riots which led to his death; you pass Mandela House, and give you time to visit this fascinating little museum (own account). The journey continues to Regina Mundi Church, site of many secret underground meetings of the then banned political parties. Finally you pass the largest stadium in Africa, Soccer City, host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final - this magnificent stadium is now nicknamed The Calabash for its resemblance to the African Pot. Soweto is unlike a suburb you've ever seen or been to, yet the history of struggle encapsulated here is a cornerstone of the South African story.
