Soweto consists of a community of extremes. On the one hand there is abject poverty and on the other hand there is extraordinary wealth in the upper class suburbs such as Diepkloof Extension and Selection Park. Some of the houses in that area sell for over one and two million rands. Today Soweto is the largest Black residential area in South Africa and has a population of more than 3.5 Million people with the land in extent of 120KM squared. There is a visible development since 1994 (Post Apartheid Era).

Review from TripAdivsor

Today we did the afternoon tour through SOWETO. With Joseph we had an extreme good Guide. We had a lot of stops to make pictures and enough time to get all the different impressions. We learned a lot of the history of the Townships in general but also the very specific topic in Soweto with Hector Pieterson, Nelson Mandela etc. Joseph was really explaining everything in a way that also our kids (15 & 12) could easily understand him.

If you are in Jo’burg or Pretoria you should take the time and do this tour. It’s really wealth spend time.
