Johannesburg's most famous son is certainly Nelson Mandela. The great man was born and raised in Soweto. This vast community has its own identity. One begins to understand this when one sees his twin cooling towers, painted with huge, colourful murals. The best way to discover its unique spirit is to participate in an organized tour.
One of Soweto's pleasures is the street food. Make sure your tour gives you time to try it out. Simple roadside braais (barbecues) are popular with the locals. If you feel more adventurous, try a specialty like Kota - a white bread sandwich that contains pretty much everything in the fridge.
