On our way back form Giants Castle we always take our clients to the Nelson Mandela Capture site. This attraction is where Mr Mandela was captured driving from Durban to Johannesburg and they have a beautiful structure of Tata Mandela's face.VERY CREATIVE.

Have driven past this site numerous times, but never stopped. It certainly was an interesting experience. You walk through a museum area, to get to the path, aptly named 'long walk to freedom', befor getting to the black rods in the ground. The amazing thing is, as you get closer, Mandela's face appears. It is better seen through the camera, than with a naked eye. There are benches all along the path, for one to sit if you wanted to.

A definite MUST on your trip to the area. We were in absolute awe. It seems we cannot know enough about this amazing man.

It's an amazing piece of art work - quite breath-taking in its vision and well worth a visit. The museum is also very good - a sobering reminder of life as it used to be.
