Nelson Mandela’s last moments were spent at home in Houghton, Johannesburg.
“The space will allow guests to immerse themselves in the legacy of Madiba and draw inspiration from Madiba’s soul, to commune together for the common good of resolving international matters and, lastly, to be inspired by this iconic global leader’s hospitable nature and spirit of service to the people,” said foundation CEO Sello Hatang.
President Nelson Mandela lived at this property pre-and during his presidency. As the very first democratically elected President of South Africa, Mandela is regarded as the Father of a Democratic South Africa.
