Nelson Mandela Capture Site


The Nelson Mandela Capture Site is situated in the Natal Midlands. This can be visited on a day Trip to the Natal Midlands.

Nelson Mandela was arrested on 5 August 1962 outside of Howick, KZN Natal, South Africa. He spent the next 27 years of his life in prison.

Explore the gentle hills of KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The Midlands Meander route is situated between the city of Pietermaritzburg and the Drakensberg mountain range (a World Heritage Site). Walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela  as you journey to the place where he was captured in 1962. The Nelson Mandela capture site is now a powerful and poignant memorial to a critical moment in South African history – and the start of Mandela’s 27 years in captivity.

The Site consists of a museum commemorating Madiba’s life and his transformation from a school boy to a freedom fighter, prisoner and President. This is followed by a walk to the monument, aptly titled the Long Walk to Freedom.
