When gold was discovered in Johannesburg in 1886, thousands of prospectors from all over the world rushed to the newly constructed town. Officials quickly segregated the residential areas, which led to the establishment of the township of Soweto. Today, Soweto houses more than a million people, who have significantly improved the "matchbox" houses of apartheid, and who strive to live a more prosperous life. Places to visit in Soweto include museums, churches, and stadiums, and visitors can also attend a variety of music, wine, and film festivals. During your trip to Soweto, make sure to visit the residences of notable historic figures, such as Nelson Mandela. Our South Africa trip builder app allows you to plan your trip to Soweto and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
