We visited Liliesleaf a few years ago and what an interesting little place, tucked away. The museum is cleverly put together, with a fascinating account of events which happened there. beautifully designed. It had a lovely coffee shop where we had a bite to eat. Well worth a visit!

We in the US only received part of the story concerning Nelson Mandela and the ANC. The tour brings home the rest of the story.

The old farmhouse where Nelson Mandela lived before he was charged during the Rivonia Trials is worth a visit. Excellent information.

Loved the experience as I could stand where the great leaders of time stood and made a difference. To see and hear of our modern history was so amazing. Definitely worth a visit.

This must be one of the best kept secrets. In the middle of what is now housing lies this important building. Brought here by my brother, who now just lives around the corner, this was a very special visit. We had already been up to Soweto to the house but seeing where everything came to a head was compelling.

As I was on my own I decided to try the takeaway option. The food was as good as if I'd eaten there with thought and detail given to each dish. Where else does one leave with 4 sauce dishes to compliment 2 dishes. Well done.
