Historic Figures


The Long March to Freedom is a one-of-a-kind concept. A tour through the procession is an immersive and moving experience as visitors connect with the lives of the persons so vividly created in bronze. From the Khoi leaders of the 1600's, Doman and Autshumato, Louis van Mauritious and the Stuurman Brothers; to proud Xhosa and Zulu kings, Maqoma, Shaka and Dingaan; to the men and women who led the struggle through the dark apartheid years, Helen Suzman, Oliver Tambo, Albert Luthuli, and to international leaders such as Heile Selassi and Martin Luther King Jnr, the procession is a sweeping narrative statement of South African pride in the country's diverse history and cultures.

A SOUTH AFRICAN
HERITAGE ATTRACTION

The bronze artworks themselves are created by an all-South African team of artists and trainees, foundaries, historians and other experts. The quality and visual appeal of these statues and the minute attention to detail are as absorbing as the inspiring stories of the individuals.

Over the past 9 years, since the project's inception, the Long March to Freedom has enriched the lives of many 1000's of people, from those who worked or were trained on the project, to the school children who have never before had the opportunity to fully experience their own history and heritage, and the domestic and foreign tourists who laud the Long March to Freedom as one of South Africa's most exciting heritage attractions.
