Liliesleaf Farm Photographs

Send to Kindle

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…

Tania Stephenson


Tania loves to cook and create magic in the kitchen for family and friends (or even just herself). Be it finding a new recipe or making a tried and tested dish from her recipe folder - the kitchen is her sanctuary. Find her hanging out with friends round the braai or curled up on the couch reading the latest crime drama. With a spring in her step and a song in her heart you’ll find her supporting local artists in theatre, music and dance – from a hip hop competition or the latest musical on stage at Artscape in Cape Town. Enjoying all things culture she likes to share her experiences and delights with those around her.
