History Tour: Description

Be captivated by riveting storytellers who weave dynamic tales of South Africa’s historical hotspots into unforgettable moments.

On this tour around South Africa, a collection of master historians bring alive pivotal moments that changed the course of history as they share their wealth and breadth of detail, to say nothing of their nuggets of knowledge. Never dull, usually droll, frequently witty, they are always passionate.

Recounting tales from different periods, they inform in fresh and memorable ways, breathe life into courageous characters, paint mental pictures so vividly you’ll feel as if you were present at each epic encounter.

From prehistory to present, experts unravel significant events through select places in time. These are windows to the past such as The Castle in Cape Town, a farm in the Cape Winelands, the Anglo Zulu battlefields and the Anglo Boer war site Spionkop in KwaZulu Natal, iconic markers and memorials in Johannesburg.

Hear accounts of legendary battles where astonishing acts of bravery led to more VC’s being awarded than in any other single military action in history, and about intrepid individuals whose tenacity challenged the course of history.

Witness the rigours of state oppression at the Apartheid Museum and the triumph of the human spirit at the Constitutional Court in Johannesburg on this small group cultural tour.

Look into the lives of iconic men and contextualise their legacies, such as a far sighted Cape governor Simon van der Stel; King Shaka, a powerful warrior who forged the Zulu kingdom; mining magnate Cecil John Rhodes; and Jan Smuts, a pioneering statesman and environmentalist.

Join historical interpreters on a fascinating journey tracking man’s footsteps from Stone Age times to the dawn of democracy.

Roll back the centuries with these acclaimed authorities as they reveal how the landscape was claimed, tamed and shaped.
