How to celebrate Freedom Day in South Africa

Freedom Day is a South African public holiday celebrated on the 27th of April, which signifies freedom and memorialises the first democratic election held on that day in 1994.

Stuck on what to do this Freedom Day? Don't fret, Thunderbolt Casino has got your back. We've got some ideas in store for you, including some epic Freedom Day free spins.


Row your boat to Robben Island

We've all heard of Robben Island but if you've never been, then now is the time.

Robben Island is home to the infamous prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years, along with over 3,000 political prisoners during their fight to end Apartheid.

Today, the island is a national and UNESCO world heritage site, and has quickly become one of South Africa's most visited and popular sites.

In an effort to merge history with the future, this global heritage site is now virtually accessible. The guided virtual tour presents a glimpse into the story of the island to people all over the world, so no matter where you are this Freedom Day you'll have a chance to visit Robben Island.


Travel back in time at the Apartheid Museum

Bet you've never been in a time machine? Well now is your chance. Head to the Apartheid Museum and delve into the past.

This iconic museum is favoured by South Africans and is voted as one of the most favourite museums in SA. So take a leap into the past where you can get deep insight into the good that overcame the wrongs of the past.


Kom Ons Braai!

What is more South African than a braai? We'll give you a moment to come up with something... Braaing was also your answer, wasn't it? 😉

It's so South African, it even has it's own public holiday. It's not just a social gathering, it's a culture and let's be honest we will use any excuse to braai.

This Freedom Day, throw some coals on the fire, get some chops, grab a dop and relax.


Explore the Nelson Mandela capture site

Found in Howick, KwaZulu Natal, the Nelson Mandela capture site is one if the most breath-taking remembrance sites in South Africa.

A view made for reminiscing, the luscious green surrounds add to the display that becomes Madiba's face as you move closer. If you can't visit in person then simply take the virtual tour.


Hang out at the feet of the Father of our Nation

The Nelson Mandela square is home to a six-meter tall sculpture of Madiba. This Freedom day you can go for a bit of shopping or perhaps even grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants that are at the feet of the father of our nation.


Feast your eyes on the SA Botanical Gardens

We're all proudly South African here and love to celebrate every national symbol and all the significant South African features. So why not head to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden where you can feast your eyes one one of the most magnificent displays of the Protea (our national flower) and of course all the surrounding scenic beauty the location has to offer.
