What happened at Liliesleaf Farm?

At the farm, they held key debates on political and military policy and strategy. It was at Liliesleaf farm that the most prominent leaders of South Africa’s struggle against Apartheid sought shelter, and attended meetings. Some of these included Nelson Mandela, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Bram Fischer, Joe Slovo, Ruth First, Raymond Mhaba, Rusty Bernstein, Bob Hepple, Harold Wolpe, and Denis Goldberg. Many of these individuals were discovered in the police’s raid on Liliesleaf farm, and tried in the subsequent Rivonia Treason Trial. They were to later spend over 25 years in prison.

“Liliesleaf was an old house that needed work and no one lived there. I moved in under the pretext that I was a houseboy

or caretaker that would live there until my master took possession. I had taken the alias David Motsamayi, the name of one

of my former clients. At the farm, I wore the simple blue overalls that were the uniform of the black male servant.”

Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

The security police raid on Liliesleaf Farm on July 11, 1963 was critical. The arrest of so many senior ANC leaders was a major blow to the movement and the struggle for liberation. However,

the subsequent trial, which became known to the world as the Rivonia Trial, finally focused world scrutiny on South Africa and its oppressive regime.

Visit the Elephant and the Monkey Sanctuaries

The Bushbabies Monkey sanctuary houses primates, such as our squirrel, spider and capuchin monkeys, who are given a new lease on life at this sanctuary. They were all previously raised as household pets, or bred for the pet trade, and were introduced to a wild world laden with waterfalls, lush vegetation and natural mountain springs. Here they have a chance to reside in as natural and wild environment as possible.
The tours are highly informative and and they strive to create awareness toward the benefit of releasing primates into sanctuaries such as these. 

The Elephant Sanctuary, started in 1999, grew from five elephants to a total of twelve African Elephants who have been domesticated through positive reinforcement and provide the unique opportunity to interact with them.

Visitors go on a journey into the world of the African elephant and are guided through an unforgettable experience with these magnificent creatures, by touching, feeding and getting to know these animals. The Elephant Sanctuary offers experiences and tours on a daily basis.
