Winnie House, the Tutu home, the Mandela Museum, is not covered in detail, but the Passport to Soweto, gives direction to the tourist site, and carries a summary of my understanding of the Hector Pieterson Museum, and June 16, 1976 protest.
Nettie and I believe, that this passport will be used regularly, as you return to enjoy the energy of the people, and in so doing, move our Social Cohesion into a positive direction.
You are invited to be a pioneer in this tourism section, aimed at economic development, once we have a few thousand people moving through these areas, the pioneer and trekker in our heritage, will be celebrated.

Like climbing Kilimanjaro, getting to the summit is an achievement, but the hike, and overnight stops, will remain for you for ever.
