Sanctuary Mandela is a 9-bedroom upmarket property located at the heart of Houghton, Johannesburg. This place of reflection is set to be an iconic five-star establishment that offers guests a truly inspired Nelson Mandela home experience.
The concept of converting Nelson Mandela’s primary residence into a place of reflection, is to create an avenue that will provide visitors with additional insights into the Mandela heritage, through an experience that is inspired by the icon’s life and times while he resided and worked at the property.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) is a key stakeholder in this development as the property owners. The foundation was established in 1999 when its founder, Mr Nelson Mandela, stepped down as the President of South Africa. The core function of the NMF is to deliver to the world an integrated and dynamic information resource on the life and times of Nelson Mandela, and promote the finding of sustainable solutions to critical social problems through memory-based dialogue interventions
