From the footbridge of the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the largest on the continent, one can get a panoramic view of Soweto. Nelson Mandela’s humble little house in Orlando West, now called the Mandela House Museum, is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history relating to the world’s most famous former prisoner.
The museum, a house comprising four inter-leading rooms, contains a rather eclectic assortment of memorabilia, paintings and photographs of the Mandela family as well as a collection of honorary doctorates bestowed on Nelson Mandela from universities and institutions around the world. You can also have a glimpse of the mansion belonging to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in an affluent part of Orlando West. Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s house and the Sisulu residences are in the same neighbourhood.
Visit the Hector Pieterson Memorial in Orlando West, built in memory of the people who died that day, 16 June 1976.After a stop for lunch (to own account) you shall proceed to theApartheid Museum. Here you will embark on a tour with your Travel guide on hand to assist you with insight and information relating to the exhibits. Illustrating the rise and fall of apartheid, the exhibits have been assembled and organised by a multi-disciplinary team of curators, film-makers, historians and designers. They include graphic film footage, photographs, text panels and artefacts depicting the events and stories of apartheid.
Upon conclusion of the tour, return to your hotel in the early evening.
