Johannesburg, South Africa, is growing fast. Skyscrapers and smart office blocks are springing up and exciting music venues, theatres and bars add a dynamic twist. Explore the emotional Apartheid Museum, the popular 7th Avenue in Melville and the fascinating Origins Centre. Visit the township of Soweto – in 1933 the Slums Clearance Act meant black people were forcibly evicted from the inner cities and into Soweto. Today, the township is home to a million people. You can take a guided tour here or even stay at one of our Soweto hostels and meet the welcoming locals. Make time to visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial & Museum which was erected in memory of the tragic 1974 student protest. Or visit the former residence of Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela.
