The Inanda Heritage Route is undoubtedly one of Durban’s most precious hidden gems.
Many know of the area’s fascinating historical sites that are part of South Africa’s liberation history,
but there are many other attractions which enable visitors to make an
intriguing connection with the people of Inanda.
The areas to the north and the west are more rural as the settlements thin out into clusters of ‘rondavel’ homesteads which extend up the slopes of the mountains surrounding Inanda Dam.
Every visitor to Durban and KwaZulu-Natal should visit the Inanda Heritage Route,
if only for the proud legacy left to South Africa by this area.
The influence which the four had on South African and international history leadership – in terms of peaceful resistance, liberation, religion, education, art and culture – was remarkable.
Mandla Nxumalo, who was there on the day to meet him, is still the local tour guide who will tell you Mandela’ story and the history of the area with insight and passion. And at the lovingly restored Gandhi Settlement and Inanda Seminary, knowledgeable local tour guides Bongani Mthembu and Ayanda Ngcobo will also bring to life the history of those institutions.
