Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Gauteng / Greater Johannesburg / Johannesburg / Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct
Take a tour of Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct, a hilltop precinct that overlooks the downtown area and serves as the home of the Constitutional Court of South Africa. Built in the late 19th century by Boer settlers, the complex was used as a prison until 1987--prominent figures like Nelson and Winnie Mandela, as well as Mahatma Gandhi were jailed here. On a tour of the complex, now a museum, you can delve into the country's turbulent history, human rights struggles, and democratic progress.

Safe environment for the whole family - friendly and helpful guards posted around the precinct. Our tour guide Pearl was amazing and the tour itself was very informative. Would 100% recommend a visit and the guided tour to anyone. Tip: book your tickets online it's quick and easy.
A very in depth 2 hour full tour narrating the unbearable conditions that political prisoners together with common criminals lived through. A short 10min video summaries what the entire Constitution Hill Precinct is about before the tour commences. The site guides are very informative & willing to explain the timelines of events for you. The art gallery has some truly thought provoking art pieces for you to interpret.
