Mandela Centre of Memory.

The itinerary will take visitors to the places through: the Eastern Cape, where he was born, grew up and attended Fort Hare University; Gauteng, where he worked as a human rights lawyer and became instrumental in South Africa’s political struggle; KwaZulu-Natal, where he was captured and the Western Cape, where he was imprisoned and ultimately freed.

The also map includes well-known attractions such as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Robben Island, Mandela’s house on Vilakazi Street in Soweto, and lesser known attractions such as the Kliptown Open-Air Museum, also in Soweto, which marks the spot where the Freedom Charter was adopted by the Congress of the People. The Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre in Mandela’s childhood home, Qunu, where he was buried, is also featured in the map.
