Joining and organised group visit to Satyagraha house was an eye-opener. Apart from the fascinating history, the complex seems like a tranquil safe haven in the middle of the rush of Johannesburg.

I went and had a pre-booked lunch so I assume that this took care of any fee type arrangement. The web site does not specify a visitors fee...so recommend you email or phone ahead so as to be sure. Best wishes Chris
