Full description
Meet your local guide and drive towards your first stop at the quaint Liliesleaf Farm in northern Johannesburg. Discover the history of the place used as a safe house for the African National Congress in the 1960s. Then head to Nelson Mandela Foundation, the last offices that Nelson Mandela occupied before his passing. Find original pieces of history pertaining to the President such as his briefcase, noble price medal, and Xhosa mountain attire. Next, visit the Constitutional Hill, where Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Ghandi, Winnie Madikizela, Joe Slovo and so many others were imprisoned. From here, make your way to the Chancellor House in Johannesburg, that was once home to Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo’s first black law firm in South Africa. Get to see the three-story building in the Ferreirasdorp area of Johannesburg. Then, proceed to Mandela House where he lived from 1946 to 1962 with his family. This house is not far from the Tutu house which was also the residential home of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. This is the place where Nelson Mandela returned to after being released from prison in 1990. At the end of the tour discover the exhibitions of the Apartheid Museum.
