Jo’burg, or ‘Jozi’ as it’s more commonly known, is without a doubt the heart of South Africa, and the place where the nation’s turbulent history has been played out for all the world to see.  South Africa’s largest city remains its financial and commercial heart.  It’s in this fast paced metropolis that the country’s radical political and social transformation is most evident - this is the ‘Rainbow Nation’ at work.

Day 2 - Johannesburg

Come join this full day tour which shares some of the journey, pain and struggle of Apartheid heroes; witness the places, experience the diverse museums where these momentous, tumultuous years have been so well documented. Your day begins at the Kliptown Open Air Museum where delegates met in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter, now the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights and the South African Constitution. The next significant stop is the fascinating Regina Mundi Church, site of so many of the underground meetings of the then banned political parties. Your next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, where you start to unravel the cause of the devastating riots, before travelling past Mandela House, where you have the option of visiting this small museum (own account). Lunch in Soweto at a local restaurant. Then continue your journey driving past the affluent suburb of Diepkloof, which is in stark contrast to the lower income areas seen earlier in the day, en-route to the iconic Apartheid Museum. This is an interactive voyage of discovery, one which takes you from the dark days of whites only privilege, through to Nelson Mandela's historic release. The Apartheid Museum is a multimedia experience, with documentary film snippets, texts, sound clips and live accounts, recapturing life in the dark days of South Africa. It's a fascinating tour, filled with tales of bravery and sadness, but ultimately, it's a story with the right ending.
