Project Description

Minimum 2 passengers to conduct tour.

Learn about the Zulu Culture and their different religions as we drive through the Townships in Inanda along the heritage route, mostly focusing on the “Shembe” religion and the history of the ANC, where most of our politicians came from and how they came about. History of Mandela, John L Dube and Gandhi.

We pass the orderly, leafy suburbs, squatter camps and the monopoly-type tiny new houses of the Cato Manor housing estates en route to Inanda. Once the home of the Natal Native Congress, it then became the African National Congress base.

* Ohlange Institute – The Ohlange Native Industrial Institute, as it was known at the time, was founded by the Rev. John Dube in 1901. He was known as Mafukuzela, reflecting his energetic and industrious nature. He became the first President of the South African Native National Congress (SANNC), later to be renamed the African National Congress (ANC). He was also the founding editor of the newspaper Ilanga lase Natal and the first principal of what is today known as Ohlange High School. It was here that Nelson Mandela cast his first vote in 1994 as the democratic South Africa was born.
