Depart Days: TUE THU SAT SUN
Inclusions: Hector Pieterson Memorial & Museum and Apartheid Museum
Many South Africans gave much, and some gave all, to achieve a truly democratic South Africa. Come join this full-day tour which shares some of the journey, pain, and struggle of those heroes; witness the places, and experience the diverse museums where these momentous, tumultuous years have been so well documented. The day begins at the Kliptown Open Air Museum where delegates met in 1955 to adopt the Freedom Charter, now the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights and the South African Constitution. The next significant stop is the fascinating Regina Mundi Church, the site of so many of the underground meetings of the then-banned political parties. Standing in here, guests will feel the tension, picture the intensity, the strain on the faces of those unthinkably brave souls, committed at any cost to changing the way of life of a nation.
The next stop is the Hector Pieterson Museum, which starts to unravel the cause of the devastating riots, before traveling past Mandela House, where guests have the option of visiting this small museum (own account). Lunch in Soweto at a local restaurant. Then continue the journey driving past the affluent suburb of Diepkloof, which is in stark contrast to the lower-income areas seen earlier in the day, en route to the iconic Apartheid Museum. This is an interactive voyage of discovery, one which takes guests from the dark days of whites-only privilege, through to Nelson Mandela's historic release. The Apartheid Museum is a multimedia experience, with documentary film snippets, texts, sound clips, and live accounts, recapturing life in the dark days of South Africa.
It is a fascinating tour, filled with tales of bravery and sadness, but ultimately, it is a story with the right ending.
