What to expect

Enjoy an orientation of the city of Johannesburg with a special visit to Soweto where you’ll get to see the Hector Pieterson Museum. Hector Pieterson has become an iconic image of the Sharpeville Massacre, due to a photograph published across the globe. Today, June 16 is the National Youth Day to honor Hector Peterson and the then-young people who fought against Apartheid rule. A memorial dedicated to one of the fallen heroes is not be missed!

1) Johannesburg City Orientation
Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, by population and is also known as Jozi or Joburg. There are plenty of historic and attractive sites in Joburg like the Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill or the Hector Pieterson Museum.

2) Soweto Orientation
Soweto is considered the biggest township in South Africa. It has been estimated that 40% of Johannesburg's residents live in Soweto. However, the 2008 Census put its population at 1,3 million. Nelson Mandela lived in Soweto from 1946 until 1961.

3) Hector Pieterson Museum
The Hector Pieterson Museum, situated in Soweto, commemorates the role of the country’s students in the struggle against apartheid. The commemorative site is just a few blocks from where 12-year-old Hector Pieterson was shot in 1976.
