On 21 March 2021, South Africa will celebrate Human Rights Day, a commemoration of our fellow country men and women who marched, fought and died for our human rights in Sharpeville in 1960 . We encourage you to honour their sacrifices and celebrate this momentous day safely at one of the following South African attractions:

Maropeng – Cradle of Humankind:

This iconic attraction is celebrating how it has brought both the country’s residents and the human species together with a focus on its educational school trips for learners, a display of the footprints of human rights activists like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, mounted on its walkways and more.

Groot Constantia:

South Africa’s oldest wine farm is renowned for its award-winning wines but what you may not know is that it is also a living museum. Visitors can learn all about its historical significance by downloading one of three audio tours and take a self-guided tour through the Groot Constantia Museum, the Cellar or Vineyard.

Available for download so that you can explore at your leisure without taxing your data, there are various virtual tours to chose from. We enjoyed the Mark Wilby artwork, a trio of suitcases created from a wind pump and ties to the importance of wind pumps for helping to draw water for farmers in the Karoo.
