ACCOMMODATION IN MTHATHA
Previously known as Umtata, this is the biggest urban centre and only city in the Transkei. It is an important transport hub with a small airport, which only has flights to and from Johannesburg. The Nelson Mandela Museum is situated in the Bhunga Building on Nelson Mandela Drive, which is what the N2 is called within the city. This building once housed the legislative assembly of the Transkei so its transformation into a museum seems appropriate. The museum displays gifts given to Mandela by people from all over the world, as well as aspects of his life. There are two other museum sites, one at Mvezo and one at Qunu.
