The Drakensberg mountains are for me the most majestic mountains to tour and to share this place with my clients is truly a blessing! From Cathedral Peak,The majestic Sentinel, Royal Natal National Park and Nelson Mandela Capture Site … and much much more.
We began our KwaZulu Natal midlands tour in the Durban area and made our way up to the Nelson Mandela Capture site near Lions river. It would be here where our historical tour would begin!
In 1962 on the 5th of August the late Nelson Mandela was captured on his way from Johannesburg to Durban where he was meeting Chief Albert Luthuli who ironically had won the noble peace prize in 1960! Mandela had been plotting to overthrow the Apartheid government.
On the one side of the road the plaque commemorates this day.
