  • So much history shared about Nelson Mandela. The tour Highlighted Winnie Mandela a lot too. The tour guides are knowledgable, kind and welcoming.

  • Really quite a modest-sized house consisting of about 4 rooms which can all be covered by a quick walk-around (except for yes stopping to see the displays), I couldn't help but think though that this....  more

  • We had an historic experience there. If you’re visiting the place, it’s best to have a guide who would be explaining the ins and outs of the house. Especially some of the memorabilia inside the house, our guide explained the belt he got from Sugar Ray Leonard, the letter in the cupboard, the setup of the house, the fire bombing of the house, the graves on the house, the umbilical cords of the children. I’d recommend this for any traveller, especially for those who didn’t get to experience Mandela. You get to be up close and personal and feel like you knew Mandela. It’s relatively affordable, we went during the Youth Day (16 June) and the fee was R40.
  • It's a great privilege visiting the house of an ICON, MY MENTOR, MY HERO AND AN EXEMPLARY LEADER. Tears filled my eyes when I walked into his house in Soweto, there has been no African Leader till date who is qualified to wear the shoes of NELSON MANDELA. I LOVE YOU SIR
