Soweto

This township is a must for anyone visiting the city of Johannesburg. Major sights include Vilakasi Street, where the Mandelas once lived (their little house is a museum); Arch bishop Tutu's home; the Hector Pieterson Museum, dedicated to the 1976 student uprisings, and Regina Mundi church, which also bears its resistance scars. Eat at Sakhumzi’s, the Italian-style Nambitha, or trendy Wandi’s Place. An overnight stay in one of the excellent B&Bs could prove the highlight of your trip.
