Born and raised in Soweto, a township of Johannesburg, I have been working in tourism for over 8 years and have created my own successful tourism agency in 2017! I am a street photographer, historical storyteller and an activist. I have a good understating of the history of Apartheid in South Africa and the impact it has between the older and the younger generation that still lives here. I love to share personal stories about the new South Africa, how apartheid has impacted everyone and how it has changed our lives. Website : Onedaysoweto.com Instagram : @oneday.africa

We will go to some historical sites in Orlando East that are most of the times excluded in other tours, or we grab lunch with one of the community leaders in Orlando West in his home. This will give you a broader picture of Sowetan history than other tours.
