South Africans woke up to the dreaded news that our Tata Mandela had passed away on Thursday, 05/12/2013 shortly before 9pm. With the international spotlight firmly upon our country, many of us hope – and are actively working towards – for a unity last seen with the 2010 Fifa World Cup. It’s achievable; we hope you’ll play your role!
The Mandela Capture site, about a 35 minute drive from Rockwood Lodges, is situated about 5kms outside of Howick. It is here where on 5 August 1962 where Nelson Mandela was captured after having evaded the Apartheid police for 17 months and before being tried at the Rivonia Trial.
We encourage all our visitors and local Midlands folk, to visit the site to pay your last tributes to Mr Nelson Mandela at the Mandela Capture Site.
