16 JUNE, 16KM HIKING SOWETO…eXploring the Now and Then of Soweto!

It has been 48 years since that eventful and revolutionary uprising day of the students of Soweto, 16 June 1976. The societal landscape of Soweto has since then evolved into an adventurous kasi…a sight, a smell, a touch and a holistic experience worth exploring while walking through iKasilamakasi (affectionate name for Soweto).

On the 16th June 2024, masses of people, local and international, from all walks of life will be commemorating this day of resilience, inspiration and dreams through different activities crossing from visits to historic sites, symbolic celebrations and activities.Gear Yourself Up! and join Hiking Soweto as we continue to offer eXperiences of Soweto like Never Before…we are set to honour “Soweto Student Uprising” by hiking on a 16KM kasi trail which we have curated to indulge your adventurous personality via the NOW & THEN of SOWETO!
