Nelson Mandela Square is a shopping centre in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa, that includes a large open area built to resemble a traditional European town square, and an office complex. The centre was formerly known as Sandton Square and was named for the former President of South Africa and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela in March 2004. A six meter high statue of Mandela was unveiled at the ceremony to rename the square. It is attached to the large Sandton City shopping centre, together forming one of the largest retail complexes on the continent with over 400 stores. Wikipedia

Private Tour of Johannesburg, Soweto and Apartheid Museum

Nelson Mandela Square, Johannesburg

This tour starts at your hotel and then we'll head to the city center of Johannesburg. We will visit Constitution Hill where we will appreciate the Constitutional Court building whose design is unique in the world. This building is built on the site and with the bricks of an old prison where Gandhi and Mandela were imprisoned. We will visit the Apartheid Museum, known as the "Essence of the Nation". Its walls represent the tragedy, destruction, brutality and the struggle of a people for democracy. Later we will go to Soweto, passing first by the football stadium, site of the 2010 World Cup. Once in Soweto, we will walk through its streets immersing ourselves in the events of 1976 that influenced the struggle for freedom, and we will walk in the footsteps of the Father of the Nation, Nelson Mandela. We will go through Vilakazi street where we will visit the house where he and his family lived. Then we will visit Nelson Mandela Square.
