Many of Johannesburg - Gauteng’s attractions can be found near to Soweto, so it is a convenient place to base yourself. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Nelson Mandela Museum and the much-loved Apartheid Museum. Also, be sure to check out the Hector Pieterson Museum and Memorial and the Gold Reef City Theme Park.
Coming from here, it is just 10 miles (16 kilometers) to one of the city’s most iconic icons, the Gold Reef City.
Hunt down a bargain, grab a bite to eat or just window shop at nearby fashion hotspots like Clearwater Mall in Johannesburg.
Follow the roar of the crowds to Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg and enjoy the spectacle of rugby union, soccer or soccer in action. If you are thinking of seeing a game played by the Springboks (South Africa National Rugby Union Team), the main rugby union team here, you’ll make plenty of friends if you wear green, yellow and white..
After a long day discovering the sights, sounds and smells of Soweto, stay the night in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. Make reservations for the Protea Hotel Roodepoort, the Soweto Hotel & Conference Centre, or the Thaba Eco Hotel.
