Online virtual tour of Tata Madiba: Father of our democracy

An online virtual tour of Tata Madiba: Father of our democracy, is now available to watch when it suits you, in the comfort of your own home.

The 360-degree virtual online tour experience is a unique and exciting online feature that provides visitors with the opportunity to ‘see’ interesting objects related to President Mandela’s life and culture, and the anti-apartheid struggle, as computerized, three-dimensional models.

Now, with the virtual online tour of Tata Madiba, visitors can also ‘access’ display cases to explore the interesting natural history objects – many of which President Mandela and his fellow prisoners may have encountered on Robben Island. An interactive map provides a unique perspective to the socio-economic landscape of South Africa, and the virtual online Tata Madiba exhibition further offers a space for intercultural and educational dialogue – where podcasts are available for listening and encourages engagement with the speakers.

The themes discussed in the podcasts are

  • “What makes a good leader?” with Lerato Kossie (Sikunye Ne Ndalo Pty Ltd) and Samantha Richmond (University of Cape Town);
  • “The Long Walk to Freedom for Women and Girls in South Africa” with Rosie Motene (actor, author and activist), Brian Petersen (activist and community leader) and Lynn-Joy Isaacs (South African Faith and Family Institute); and lastly,
  • “The time is ripe for Afro-centric solutions” with Dr Ruben Richards (Ruben Richards Foundation) and Brent Lindeque (Good Things Guy blogger).

“We celebrate this great statesman and the father of our nation, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, and hope to inspire and educate the world through this virtual online tour.”
