On a recent visit to Johannesburg my mom and I decided to spend a morning taking a tour at the Liliesleaf farm in the leafy suburb of Rivonia. I had heard of Liliesleaf before but this was a learning and historical experience unlike anything I have experienced in a while.
Liliesleaf farm was key to the political and military policies and strategies of the ANC during Apartheid and the farm has been restored and turned into an interactive exhibit which has been open to the public since 2008. We were taken on a tour by an experienced guide who was both knowledgeable and happy to answer our barrage of questions.
She also showed us the places we could come back to visit should we want to find out more – or has she told us this is where you teach yourself. So you are able to take in as little or as much as you would like to from this visit. I strongly urge anyone who is in Rivonia to go and visit this special place. Learn more about our country’s history and experience a fantastic exhibit.
