Did you know that the naming of Soweto came from a competition held in 1963, when the entry of the simplified version of South Western Township won the day? This history of Soweto, however, is a lot more complicated, and our Soweto 360 tour shows you the good, the bad and the ugly. Newly developed houses stand alongside shacks built from corrugated iron and re-used materials; a street vendor sells a pyramid of fruit on a plate outside a multi-million Rand shopping mall; minibus taxis hoot on every corner, occasionally overtaking a donkey and cart. Yes, these are the sights and sounds of Soweto; a city all by itself, housing half the population of Johannesburg.
We visit some important sites such as the Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication, Regina Mundi Church, the Hector Pieterson Memorial, and Vilakazi Street - home to two Nobel Peace Prize winners. But we also witness the day-to-day life of Soweto’s residents as we drive past the world's third biggest hospital, a market selling mud bricks and incense to be lit for the ancestors, ranks of minibus taxis and other transport, public art & graffiti, and we enjoy a craft beer, gin & tonic or cool drink as we go.
Sarah's fellow guide, Tshepo, was born and bred in Soweto and still lives there today, so you'll be in experienced hands.
Other things to note
Don't be afraid of Johannesburg's reputation for crime. Yes, there are hotspots, but you'll be in good hands, and I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised by what you find. It's a city with a tough past and a big heart, great energy and a vibrant art, music and restaurant culture. Come and explore!

Møt verten din, Sarah

Har vært vertskap på Airbnb siden 2020
  • Identitet er verifisert
After gaining a BSc. (Hons) degree at Cardiff University, I gained my global tourism experience in educational tours, ski tours and incentive travel. I operated my own business in the incentive travel field for 8 years. When age 40 hit, I relinquished overseas journeys and settled into tour guiding in Johannesburg, which has been my home since 1992. I am passionate about showing both the everyday and the hidden Johannesburg to visitors. My passions include music, literature and art, and I am able to incorporate these themes into my walking tours of the city.
‘One thing I wish I’d understood in school is that the word History is simply a contraction of the words His Story; it’s just someone’s story! Now I act as a story-teller, bringing the history and culture of Johannesburg to life in a fun and informative way.

Her skal du være

You'll visit the Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication, home to the Freedom Charter, as well as the surrounding streets of Kliptown with its market and some fabulous graffiti. On to the Regina Mundi Catholic Church, which played a huge role in South Africa's apartheid history; and finally to Vilakazi Street which is bursting with life; the route of the 1976 march, the homes of Mandela and Tutu, curio stalls, dancers, cafes and a true Soweto vibe!
