About
Experience this exciting and eco-friendly tour around the streets of Soweto. Go out for a half day cycling adventure around the township and get to know the different communities and its history. Go to places such as a former migrant workers' hostel for men. Here you will be introduced to the culture and life today. Visit Meadowlands, famous for the forced removals from the vibrant and racially mixed Sophiatown in the 1950's. Cycle through historical landmarks of the 1976 student uprisings and visit the memorial site of Hector Pieterson. You will also cycle down Vilakazi Street where Nelson Mandela used to live and where Bishop Desmond Tutu has his home. This tour gives you insight about Soweto's many different faces, the Soweto uprisings and the resistance against Apartheid. You will also see and learn how the communities have changed and developed to what it is today. End with a traditional lunch.
