The growth and development of townships is pivotal to the Gauteng Provincial Government and as such, the Township Economic Revitalisation (TER) Strategy was developed towards building an inclusive, labour absorbing and growing economy. Township tourism has been positioned as one of the key drivers of this plan with the intention of growing and supporting the number of black owned tourism enterprises.

Gauteng province has since identified ten prioritised townships which have vibrant and available tourism experiences. According to a recent research report, it was very clear that Soweto was by far the most advantageous destination given the plethora of tourism products, accessibility via transportation routes and cultural and historical heritage that informs the narrative of the township.
