Top 5 Struggle Sites In South Africa Johannesburg
Perhaps the most impressionable aspect of a visit to Cape Town is a boat trip out to the former prison at Robben Island, a South African World Heritage Struggle Sites In South Africa that represents a turning point in the African/Black struggle and also South Africa’s democracy.

THE APARTHEID MUSEUM
Situated at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg South Africa , this museum tells the true tale of the Apartheid, its structure, its destructive effect on South Africans, and other colours and languages, and also depicts vividly how the Apartheid was brought to its knees.

Its quite a view I must confess. It brings back to life the liberation struggle.

SHARPEVILLE TOWNSHIP AND MEMORIAL
Found just outside Vereeniging , dedicated to the Sharpeville Massacre of 1960.
