Additional Information

Introduction

This hill overlooking Johannesburg is the location of South Africa’s highest court and site of the Old Fort Prison Complex. Today it is also a celebration of freedom. Both Gandhi and Mandela were incarcerated at the jail as were many famous and infamous criminals and freedom fighters. Today, you can tour the former detention center that has been resurrected as a museum in honor of the very individuals once imprisoned here.
