Touring Soweto

Nice article in the Washington Post on white South Africans going to Soweto.

About 200,000 white South Africans will visit Soweto this year, according to the Soweto Tourism Association, up from 30,000 five years ago. About 400,000 foreigners visit annually, the association says. The owners of bed-and-breakfasts in Soweto report that white South Africans make up at least one-third of their business -- up from virtually nothing two years ago. And tour bus companies are beginning to market township tours to white South Africans.

Haven't been myself, but then I left Joburg at the end of '94 and things werent so rosy then.
