Full Day Soweto and Apartheid Museum


Johannesburg also known as Jozi, Joburg, or Egoli (meaning the City of Gold) is the provinical capital of Gauteng and is the economic and commercial hub of South Africa. It is also South Africa’s largest city with the greater metropolitan area of Johannesburg having a population of over 12 million. It is a very sprawling city with many different nodes and neighbourhoods.


Soweto origins go back to 1905 when, using an outbreak of disease in the part of town now known as Newtown as an excuse, the then Johannesburg City Council took the opportunity of moving the black residents of this area to a place 20km south west of Johannesburg. After the National Party took power in 1948, it instituted the Group Areas Act and forcibly moved black population groups out of inner Johannesburg areas, such as Sophiatown, to Soweto, a name derived in 1963 from the acronym South West Townships. Today the city of Soweto has more than 2 million inhabitants. Previously under-resourced, it still has large areas of dire poverty but it also now has shopping malls, including the large Maponya Mall; parks and recreation facilities; many restaurants and B&BS;  the newly opened Soweto theatre; and Vista University campus which is part of the  University of Johannesburg.
