  • This simple house is so impressive and makes a great contrast to where Mandela lived so many of his years at Robben Island (Cape Town)

  • This was a stop as part of our tour. We had a guide who walked us around. There are lots of old photos of Mandela and stories about his time here. Very touristy area; you will bothered by people...

  • It was like going to the Pilgrim as I spiritual felt connected with our late Tata Nelson Mandela and our mother Winnie. Such a wonderful day I had to visit their first house in Soweto. I will visit again and recommend those who have been not visited to do so ☺
  • I didn't really spend too much time actually within the establishment but it's pretty cool. Unfortunately it is ZA so there's a lot of people who just seriously bug you to try to get your money in just about any way so that's always fun. But yeah, ignore the guys trying to park you. They don't actually own any of the parking and are just trying to get money off of you. But yeah, it's cool to see a historic home I guess
