Township Tour sights in South Africa
- Sort by:
The African National Congress (ANC) party was born in a shanty town 5km outside Bloemfontein in 1912. Today, you can experience life, and learn some important history, on a guided tour of Manguang Township, where South Africa’s most powerful political party was formed. Not surprisingly, Manguang, and other black townships around the Bloem area, played an integral role in the fight to end apartheid. Tours visit culturally important sights such as Mapikela House, now a national monument, where Thomas Mapikela, a founding father of the ANC, once resided.
