“Worth the experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

What a privilege to visit this site. Our own ‘long walk’ down to the sculpture was not nearly the same as Mr Nelson Mandela’s but was poignant none-the-less.

“UNINSPIRING”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

It is not very visible and we only saw it by chance. It is not identifiable as to what it is - one would have thought the powers that be would have built something more dramatic. It is amazing that the iron rods have not been stolen yet.

“If you aren't looking for it, you'll drive past!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

A historic sight that is amazing to be able to see. But there is a mountain of untapped potential around the area - as there is nothing else to really make the stop worth while.

Emotional, sadness,bravery,creatively extraordinary these are some of the words that could explain this place. You have to make the effort to go there

“TATA MANDELA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

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.
