A closer look at A walk down SA's memory lane: rub shoulders with some of Joburg's anti-apartheid icons.

Here's What We'll Be Doing

  1. Vilakazi street is know for all the anti-apartheid heroes who lived there. It is also the only street in the world to ever house two Nobel Peace Prize recipients.
  2. Soweto was built in parts and the first one was Orlando, therefore attracting almost every black political activist in its rise. A walk through Orlando will show you spaces of significant history as well as a vibrant lifestyle Sowetans live today. Also, Orlando still houses SA icons from the 70's and 80's. You will get to meet and greet some of these heroes.
  3. End your tour under the majestic twin towers of Orlando for a braai-ed meal that will change your life.
