Liliesleaf Farm Museum

A tour through this thatched-roof farm and museum takes visitors through the gripping history of Liliesleaf, a secret gathering point for leaders of the South African liberation movement. Pivotal figures in the resistance—including Nelson Mandela, for a time—strategized here until the committee was outed and Mandela captured in a police raid in 1963.

Liberation groups that called for an end to apartheid were made illegal in 1960 via the Unlawful Organisation Act, but that didn’t stop the resistance from collectively devising a covert means of protesting the unbearable inequality of South African society.
