“Shocking Hardships....”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

I think the fort is a lovely stop on your visit to SA. It is well kept and gives a good idea of what the conditions were like back in the day when it was operational. it has an eary feeling in it as if ghosts still haunt this place, a wwlot of hardships was endured here. i love going back to revisit this attraction. A must see on your list of things to do.

“A must for all South Africans and history lovers”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

My tour of the Jhb Fort was awe inspiring, however it is sad that not many people know of the Fort. Living in Jhb my entire life, I was only exposed to the fort ona team building exercise. The photographic and quote displays are deep and poignant, portraying the feelings and emotions of the Fort and the actions that took place there.

It is heart wrenching to be shown the conditions in which prisoners lived and what they endured, including the likes of Nelson Mandela.

The tour is not lond and drawn out, it is very thought out, with a thorough tour of the Fort, each sterp being informative and interesting.
