Beautifully maintained under the management of Edna Oberholzer, this place is worth a visit, a stay over... More

I must admit that when I went here I knew very little about Mahatme Gandhi"s stay in South Africa. It is such a calming and relaxing place whilst at the same time filling you with knowledge. Really enjoyed my visit.

Fantastic little museum - insight to how Ghandi lived in South Africa. A quick tour as we arrived and then we could wander around for as long as we liked. We arrived by taxi, the museum cost R70 each. Great visit. Only regret is that we should have phoned to book lunch there.

A real beautifully curated home where Gandhi used to live, it honours his work and peaceful endeavours and is informative about his role in South Africa.
