SOWETO AND APARTHEID MUSEUM TOUR (Full day: 8 hours)

Hours allocated include travelling time

We combine Soweto and Apartheid museum to learn more about the culture, Political struggle and inequalities in South Africa before Democracy. Soweto is the melting pot of South African Urban Culture. It is the must-see of tourists who are looking to see more than the big 5. Post the 1994 Democratic Election, Soweto has become a place of vibrancy, friendship and contrast.

We visit Vilakazi street, the street with Historical Significant. The houses of the two Nobel Prize Winners: Late President Mandela and Arch-Bishop Emeritus Tutu are situated in this famous street. You will have the opportunity to see the various parts of Soweto, how some communities are still in need of development and poverty alleviation and how some areas have turned into "small affluent suburbs.

For anyone wanting to understand and experience what Apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to Apartheid museum is fundamental.

At Apartheid museum you do the tour of a series of 22 individual exhibitions, a dramatic emotional journey of racial discrimination.

Apartheid Museum is acknowledged as a Pre-eminent Museum in the World dealing with the Apartheid story in South Africa. It illustrates the Apartheid history and Post- Apartheid era of South Africa.

An Architectural consortium, comprising several leading Architectural firms, conceptualised the design of the building on a 7 hectare stand. The museum is a superb example of design, space and landscape offering the International community a unique South African experience.
 The exhibits have been assembled and organised by a multi- disciplinary team of Curators, Film-makers, historians and designers. They include film footages, Photographs, Text panels and Artefacts.

The museum is a beacon of hope showing the world how South Africa is coming to terms with its oppressive past and working towards a future that all South Africans can call their own.


MANDELA'S EXHIBITION
Nelson Mandela's exhibition is currently on at the Apartheid Museum. Mandela's exhibition examines his undoubted Strengths and Greatness, but does not shy away from his Weaknesses too. Mandela's extra-ordinary life is explored through seven themes: CHARACTER, COMRATE, LEADER, PENSIONER, NEGOTIATOR and STATESMAN.
 Narratives are presented through dramatically visual wall display, supported by film displays of original artefacts. A tour to the apartheid museum is a must for any visitor, who wants to understand the history of Apartheid.

 

THE PILLARS OF THE CONSTITUTION

South Africa’s new democratic constitution contains guarantees of Equality, more extensive than anywhere else in the world. At its heart are seven fundamental values, which are represented by Pillars in the first courtyard visitors encounter on arrival at the museum: democracy,
Equality, reconciliation, diversity, responsibility ,respect and freedom
