Wozobona Cultural House
Putu pap and chuck: that’s what Wozobona Cultural House is all about. Come and experience the real Soweto! Wozobona Cultural House is dedicated to the memory of the struggle for democracy and the heroes of that time. Situated at 976 Phiela street, Orlando East, it speaks of all things authentic.
Housed in one of the sexiest buildings in the province, the Soweto Theatre hosts some of the best live acts and theatre productions around. The grounds offer a panoramic view of Soweto itself and the building boasts a museum which showcases the history of this historic township.
Credo Mutwa Cultural Village
Explore the world of Zulu shaman and historian, Credo Mutwa, through his cultural village. This fascinating and eerie place features a number of traditional and strange sculptures. As instructed by Credo Mutwa himself, entry into the village is free of charge. Be sure to bring your camera – it is one for the books! Gather your clan and step into the world of the man who predicted many of the world’s tragedies.
Mzanzi style… that’s what’s going on at Chaf Pozi. Mention this place to a local and you’re sure to see them smile from ear to ear, exclaiming, “Duuuuuuude, that place is awesome!” Cold beer and hot coals, lekker steak, live music and big-screen sports for big days. Chaf offers a great view of the Orlando Towers and has that authentic vibe we all love so much. It’s the best excuse to explore Soweto.
