Nelson Mandela's humble little house in Orlando West, Soweto, now known as the Mandela Family Museum, is an interesting stopover for those keen to imbibe a slice of authentic history on the world's most famous former prisoner.
Nelson Mandela moved into 8115 Vilakazi Street in Orlando West, Soweto in 1946. His second wife, Winnie, moved in with him in 1958. He returned there briefly in 1990, saying: "It was only then that I knew in my heart that I had left prison." Restored at a cost of R9-million, the house has re-opened to the public.
