The map leads tourists through 16 attractions across four of the country's provinces, each affiliated with a particular moment in Mandela's life, such as Robbin Island, where he served most of his imprisonment. You can also visit the house he lived in with his family in Soweto and his former stomping grounds at Liliesleaf Farm, where he used to gather in secret with his co-revolutionaries.
Not much time has passed since Mandela's death, but that doesn't diminish the historical value and influence that already exists from his life's work. We understand that making Mandela the main focus of your trip and traveling to all 16 sites is probably a stretch, but no visitor looking to understand South African culture should come and go without appreciating how important he was, and still is, to the people of the country. If you want to get to know the locals and their perspective on life more deeply, spend an afternoon at one of these sites as you pass through.
