There are many ways to tour Soweto, but if you want the real Soweto, go with Mandy Mankazana from Imbizo Tours (www.imbizotours.co.za). Mandy lives in Soweto – not all tour guides do. And she has an upbeat enthusiasm for her community that was a joy to experience. We saw the Mandela family home, Vilakazi Street, the Hector Peterson Memorial and... More

We booked a tour to Soweto, almost reluctant to being typical voyeurism tourists who come along to take photos. But Imbizo tours is different - Mandy takes you into the community to the markets, to interact with locals and into the townships to meet the residents. It is a real incite into life in Soweto - and shows the charm... More

No trip to South Africa is complete without a visit to the townships and Imbizo Tours provides an unforgettable firsthand experience. Our tour took us through various neighborhoods and highlights in Soweto, including the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum, the Mandela House, the Chris Hani Hospital, and Orlando Towers (I did not bungee jump). We visited affluent and poor areas... More
