History in South Africa & the Apartheid Years

Help your students understand the events which consumed South Africa during the Apartheid.

Students can discover the extent of the Apartheid movement which in fact dates back much further than the era of Nelson Mandela and the ANC struggle in the 80s and 90s. Take your group to the Apartheid museum, and visit Robben Island to bring substance to the history they have learnt. As well as being a fascinating cultural experience, the tour helps students to comprehend the ferocity and unjust events in South Africa's history.
