Soweto Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Nowadays, history still shows its face. Most sights in this thriving township are dedicated to the commemoration of either peaceful or violent political struggles. In the western part of Soweto, Orlando, you’ll find the former houses of two Nobel Prize winners, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu who staked their lives, together with many others, for human rights.
After visiting the Nelson Mandela Family museum walk down Vilakazi Street and take the first road to the left, the second house on your left is a charming little place affectionately called "the shack", the locals here will play a game of pool with you and share a beer, it is not commercialised at all, unlike the rest of this area. It is a gem of a spot and Deon "AZI" the owner will always welcome you.
