Hiking in the
nature reserves also recommended.
Close to Johannesburg,
Soweto - an
acronym for South Western Townships - its
genesis lies in the segregationist planning
of South Africa. Later it was also the
hotbed of many political campaigns and
anti-apartheid movements. Visit and see
Newtown's Market Theatre, experience the
festivals and events specific to South
Africa, enjoy cabarets, live South
African jazz and hip-hop and spend time
at the blues bars.
Take in a show at the Liberty Theatre
on the Nelson Mandela Square, cast your eye
across works of art in one of the galleries
in Nelson Mandela Square.
