Constitutional Hill Private Half Day Tour

Join us on this tour that is about the history of how the constitution of South Africa began at the Constitutional Hill. Constitutional Hill was originally a fort built by former President Paul Kruger to protect the Boer republic against the British invasion. During the apartheid era, the fort became a detention centre until 1978 for political activists like Nelson Mandela before they were moved to notorious prisons like Robben Island. In 2004, the centre opened as a constitutional court and still has a lot of material and memories of 200 South African artwork. Discover more upon your visit.
