Mandela House Reviews
Soweto tout le monde y va c'est presque incontournable, ici il y a tellement de touristes locaux et autres qu'on se sent en sécurité (pas comme dans le centre de Jobourg). Donc entre les différents or... more »Soweto everyone goes there is almost unavoidable, here there are so many local and other tourists that you feel safe (not like in the center of Jobourg). So between the different orchestras, sellers of souvenirs, you arrive in front of the famous House which is imprisoned by large barriers, that of D Tutu is surrounded by a high wall. A piece of history is before you here.....
I enjoyed the exhibits as well as the culture I experienced. You learn so many things about NM that I wasn't privy to at a young age. The house is small in size and Enormous in heritage. more »
One of the first heritage sights I've visited in South Africa and I must say I was thoroughly impressed. The house has been well preserved to blend just the right amount of Mandela's history as well as his legacy. Entry is cheap, you also get a free tour as well as being allowed to take an unlimited amount of pictures anywhere in the premises. The are a lot more things to be said about Mandela's house but I suggest you go out and experience it yourself
The place is beautiful. A lot of tourist activity. On the day we went the ATM slot was not working so we were unable to go in. One thing I disliked was a local photographer who was literally forcing people to take pictures and people have their own cameras.
