political-historical backdrop

The history of South Africa can also be seen as a journey through trials and tribulations to a nation whose dream of unity and common purpose is now capable of realization.

Political-historical site visits focus mainly on areas associated with the struggle for freedom for all and the severe longing for a democracy.

Included are some of the following:

  •  A visit to Soweto with a historical rich past where young people died in the resistance against the Apartheid regime
  • A well-guided tour of the District Six museum and the community (where the forced removals took place) that reveals the vibrancy and the pain of this suburb over a period of 40 years

“Far more than tourism Mission Vision Tours provides lessons for life. Drawing from the vast diversity existing in South Africa, participants gain hands on access, allowing them deeper understanding of this amazing first world – third world country.” Kevin Dean, West Chester University.
