Overview

This tour will expose you to Gandhi’s journey and experiences, during his stay of over 2 decades in South Africa as he employed non-violent resistance. He stood against the prejudice and unjust South African government.

Gandhi arrived in South Africa in 1893 and was exposed to the atrocities committed to the Indian community. “The father of the nation” as he was affectionately called, is still commemorated in India and his teachings and ideologies still pioneer the soul of South Africa.
