MANDELA IN CAPE TOWN: FROM PRISONER TO PRESIDENT
This story is rich with elements of human drama: pain & heartache, bravery & courage, secrecy and intrigue. Amongst the players is a president, a chief of prison, a spy and a prisoner. The setting is Cape Town.
When most people think about Mandela and Cape Town they don’t see beyond Robben Island, but Cape Town has a captivating Mandela story to tell as it provided the setting for the unfolding of a series of significant and secretive meetings that led to the surprise release of Mandela and the unbanning of the ANC in February 1990.
Join us for a 2 ½ hour walk, which covers approximately 2km of the historic and cultural heart of Cape Town and brings to life the journey Mandela took from his conviction in 1964 at the Rivonia Trial, his time as a prisoner on Robben Island until his current status as a global icon of bravery and freedom
Price: R1970 (1-4 guests), R419 per each additional person (valid end-Sept 2019)
