Origins Centre

It is believed that our earliest ancestors lived in Africa over 200,000 years ago and as time passed, they migrated to the other continents like Asia, Europe, the Middle East and finally America. The Origins Centre is a world class facility which traces the evolution of man right through the ages. The exhibits will not fail to fascinate even the hardened believer. The center has five venues, which can be hired for private events and arrangements can also be made to include bands, dancers or other performing artists in a function. A visit to Johannesburg is not complete without a visit to the Origins Centre.

Liliesleaf

Liliesleaf is the site where members of the African National Congress revolted against the oppressive apartheid rule and plotted to bring down the despotic empire, which then led to the Rivonia Trial. Now converted into a history museum, Liliesleaf showcases the eventful past of the tribal land and the various hardships its revolutionaries faced in a bid to eradicate racism from the country. The farm's several rooms as well as outhouses are home to a wide collection of some riveting objects which provide a glimpse into the life and times of the iconic characters. The displays also acquaint visitors with how the activists drafted their plans against the cruel political forces. A key attraction is the 1980s' safari wagon which smuggled arms into the country. Declared as a heritage site, the museum is one of the must-visit places in Johannesburg.
