About the Host
I am Andile born in rural South Africa, but have lived in Johannesburg my whole life. Before I became a culture and wildlife guide, I was a mountain guide in the Drakensberg Mountain. I love my country and would like to show you around.
The museum documents the history of South Africa, especially the brutality of the old government where people we segregated according to their skin color. But things have change now, we are now in democracy, also the museum does depict the new South Africa.
