Top 6 road trip stops on the KZN Midlands Meander
Nelson Mandela Capture Site
The Nelson Mandela Capture Site – just outside Howick, is one of KZN’s most significant heritage attractions. In 1952, almost 70 yrs ago, this was the place where Nelson Mandela was arrested. His arrest led to the famous Rivonia Trial and his 27-year imprisonment. After visiting the monument, you can have lunch at the lovely Truth Cafe on site, serving traditional KZN fare.
