The Inanda Heritage trail

The Inanda Heritage trail

The Inanda Heritage trail forms part of the Freedom route in Inanda, north of Durban, which takes visitors on a journey into the history of South Africans who helped shape the country. The Inanda Heritage trail starts at the Inanda township, and takes visitors into the Ohlange Institute, which was established by Rev. John Dube, who was also the first president of the African National Congress. The Ohlange Institute is also the historical site where ex president Nelson Mandela cast his vote in South Africa's first democratic elections in 1994.

Also located in Inanda, is the Inanda Seminary. Established in 1869 by the missionary Mary Edwards, the seminary is one of the oldest African private schools for girls, and has recently undergone a complete restoration. The next destination along the route is Ebuhleni village, the origin of the Shembe religion. The Shembe church was founded in the village about one hundred years ago, and today has over two million followers.

Another highlight of the tour is a stop at the Phoenix settlement, where Mahatma Ghandi developed his philosophy of passive resistance called Satyagraha, which had such a profound impact on the world. Ghandi"s home stands in the settlement, fully restored, and has been named as a monument. The tour finally draws to an end at the township of Cato Manor. This sprawling township is located close to Durban's city centre. Here visitors can see the shacks and the new housing development and gain some knowledge about the issues of urban settlement and the Government housing policies.
