Vilikazi Street/Mandela House Museum:
It is probably the most famous street in the Soweto township of Johannesburg. Both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu lived here, how many places can claim that two Nobel Peace Prize winners lived in the same street? Tutu still lives here with his wife Leah, and Mandela’s house has become a museum. We will get to walk the whole street, visit the Mandela’s house and enjoy some local souvenir shopping.
We then head towards the Chancellor’s house where Nelson Mandela and Walter Sisulu opened a thriving legal practice that fought apartheid’s restrictions on black life and defended black clients who had been accused of breaking apartheid’s cruel and petty laws.
Constitution Hill is a living museum that tells the story of South Africa’s journey to democracy. The site is a former prison and military fort that bears testament to South Africa’s turbulent past, Mandela was one of the many prisoners to have set foot here. Today Constitution Hill is home to the country’s Constitutional Court which endorses the rights of all citizens.
We continue towards the North of the city to find the most expensive suburbs of South Africa. Houghton is one of the richest suburbs in South Africa and also where Nelson Mandela used to live after he was released from prison in 1990.
