No visit to Johannesburg would be complete without a visit to Fort. i took a guest from New York and she found the visit fascinating. Nelson Mandela and many other people involved in the struggle against the laws were held here. The Court is very interesting and has a beautiful beaded South African flag made by local African artists. The Women's Goal is a chilling reminder of South Africa's past.

I enjoyed the Fort and have taken the childred there often. It is slightly different to the Cape Town Fort, but still enjoyable.

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.
