If you want to learn more about Nelson Mandela and his fascinating story, here six places of important historical significance to Madiba and his fight for freedom.

This year, 2018, marks the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. Born on 18 July, this month presents an opportunity for both South Africans and the international community to celebrate the legacy of Madiba.

In honour of Mandela’s revolutionary spirit and his undying quest for knowledge, we have compiled a list of six South African places to visit that are intrinsically connected to the great liberator and his fascinating journey.

These areas associated with Madiba form pieces of a historical puzzle, pieced together through struggle and determination, revealing a portrait of truth and its freedom.

From humble beginnings as a cowherd working the vast grasslands of the rural Eastern Cape, where Madiba learnt patience and resolve as a child, developing into a proud and honest servant of the struggle in his later life. The landscape of South Africa is dotted with pockets of grace, inhabited and touched by Madiba’s legacy.
