Join us on a half-day tour of aTraditional South African Township Life, Culture and Music:

tart the morning with a tour of Soweto, South Africa's most famous township. Our tour starts as we drive past the largest Hospital in the Southern Hemisphere, the Chris Hani

Healers.

We continue onto a squatter camp (informal settlement) where you will have a chance to buy arts and crafts of the local people and also take a tour of the squatter camp with a local guide.

We continue past Vista University and onto FREEDOM SQUARE, Kliptown. Today this Famous space shows signs of the momentous events that occurred here in the mid-1950's.

Another part of the strategy the resistance leadership devised was the creation of a 'People's Bill of Rights'. This is a very famous document and became known as the Freedom Charter. Kliptown Soweto was the place chosen for a large public meeting in 1955 during which the contents of the document would be finalized and agreed upon.

The tour includes a visit to the OPPENHEIMER TOWER - popular tourist attraction offering a unique vantage point from where most of Soweto can be viewed. Built from the ruins of

The old Sophiatown, the tower is set in unusual gardens. Then a guided tour of Credo Mutwa's cultural village of African mythical sculptures.
