MORE INFORMATION

DESCRIPTION
Join us for an immersive experience into South Africas past, present and future. Nelson Mandela, a true icon in South Africa, lived through the oppressive Apartheid regime, fought for freedom and ensured peace in South Africa when the government changed hands in 1994.

Join us in Langa, the oldest township in South Africa, where your local guide will take you to the Guga Sthebe Arts & Culture Centre. Here you will learn about life in the township, support small business initiatives and visit the arts and crafts stalls.

At the “Dompas” museum, you will get an insight into what Apartheid meant for South Africans and how it affected daily life. Here you will get the chance to hear a talk from Christo Brand, Nelson Mandelas Former prison warder who later became a close friend. Truly a once in a life time opportunity to hear tales from Mandelas time in prison and the friendships he formed.

For lunch we will visit Langas culinary surprise “Jordans ways of cooking” where a specially designed lunch for Remote's awaits.

HOST INTRO
In 1978 at the young age of 18 Christo Brand started his work as a prison guard on Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was serving a life sentence. In 1982 Christo was transferred to Pollsmoor Prison; at the same time they moved Mandela and 3 others there. Christo was in charge of the Mandela group for the next 6 years. On Mandela’s release from prison, he arranged a job for Christo in his office; then at the constitutional assembly; and then in 1997 when Robben Island was declared a World Heritage Site, Christo began working there. Christo and Mandela remained friends right until Mandela’s death in 2013 when Christo attended his funeral in Qunu as a guest of the Mandela family. Christo retired from Robben Island in July 2018 to pursue his story-telling full time.

Ntlalo Jordan's love for cooking started at school in his home economics class. He has trained under some of the leading chefs in South Africa and has worked in several top restaurants and establishments in Cape Town. His entrepreneurial spirit led him back home, wanting to bring world class cooking to the heart of Langa. Through food, Ntlalo has been able to bring locals and internationals together and showcase the vibe that is Langa and it's people.

Do this!

You probably won't get the chance to speak to anyone else in Capetown that was as close of a friend to Mandela. Great to do before a Robin Island visit. His story is amazing and the meal is as good as any grandmas cooking you're going to get.
