For a deeper insight into the heroic life of Nelson Mandela than watching the Long Walk to Freedom, which hits the big screen today, check out 2by2 holidays’ Long Walk to Freedom itinerary – a ten night adventure following in Nelson Mandela’s footsteps.
Beginning in Johannesburg, with a visit to his last home in Houghton before driving down to Old Fort Prison where he was held after his capture, the tour then drives across Nelson Mandela Bridge into bustling downtown Johannesburg to see the building where he and Oliver Tambo had their law practice. The journey then continues to the sprawling township of Soweto to visit his original home and significant memorials to the freedom struggle, including Freedom Square and the Hector Pietersen Memorial.
The tour also visits the Apartheid Museum and Liliesleaf Farm, the farm secretly used by the African National Congress and the location where many of its prominent leaders were arrested prior to the infamous Rivonia Trial. The tour finishes with a trip over to Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years.
The tour is priced at £1,995 per person including flights and accommodation. For more information visit the 2by2 holidays website or contact your Insignia Lifestyle Boutique personal assistant.
