Nelson Mandela, fondly known by his clan name, Madiba, was incarcerated at Constitution Hill on two occasions. Once, in 1956, before being transferred to Pretoria for the Treason Trial, and again in 1962, after he was arrested in KwaZulu-Natal, the arrest that would see him imprisoned on Robben Island. Mandela visited the prison on several other occasions however, including in his professional capacity as a lawyer to several people, including his then-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. A permanent exhibition has been established at Constitution Hill in his honour. This tour traces the steps of Madiba and all his interactions in and around the precinct.
The tour will take approximately 1.5 hours. Suitable for children 12 +
