Freedom Park reports on International Museum Day 2019
“The Future of Tradition” was the theme used by the International Council of Museums for raising museum awareness globally. Freedom Park participated in collaboration with a number of museums in the City of Tshwane.
The International Museums Day (IMD) launch took place on 17 May 2019 at Ditsong Museum of Cultural History. The participating museums had their cultural table-top exhibitions to create awareness of the different museums to both learners and the community at large.
The day was jam-packed with activities including an inter-generational dialogue between learners and retired professionals, performances from a youth group, storytelling and poetry. The day was also attended by Chris Hani’s grandchild Nosivo Khumalo who spoke as a youth ambassador.
The participating museums had free entry for both learners and the community. Freedom Park was also amongst the museums that opened, free of charge, for a week for learners only.
The museums which participated were also grouped by the City of the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality according to their proximity in order to dispatch learners with their buses to the grouped museums. Freedom Park was grouped with the Voortrekker Monument where learners would start their educational excursion and end at Freedom Park.
A special education programme was developed for learners that coincided with International Museum Day.
The education programme was “My Flag, My Pride, My Culture”. The programme was interactive and challenged learners to dig deep in their cultural reservoirs as well as to give attention to other people’s cultures. The rationale behind the education programme was to embrace the South African cultures using the most cohesive symbol which is the South African Flag.
The education programme also attracted the committee that organised the Africa Day celebration which took place at Freedom Park on 24 May. As it was Africa month, they requested the same concept on an African map. Learners got the opportunity to take part interchangeably in both the International Museum Day and the Africa Day Education Programme.

Tandala Wilderness Trails
Situated within the Dinokeng Game Reserve on the banks of the Pienaars River, you will find Tandala Tented Camp and Wilderness Trails. Unfenced and unspoilt, guests are able to have the exclusive bush experience in the free-roaming haven for lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, brown hyena, waterbuck, ostrich, jackal, hippo, crocodile and over 300 bird species, including fish eagles and a breeding pair of martial eagles.
The camp offers accommodation in four tents, each sleeping up to two people each with twin beds, luggage racks and bedside tables. Ablutions are open-air and are situated within close proximity to the tents. There is a central and communal area with dining area, lounge, fully-stocked bar and fully-functional kitchen with a communal boma area for evenings around the fire with a daily cleaning service. The camp is eco-friendly and solar powered.
The intimate tented camp is a hotspot for game movements and the remoteness of the camp ensures that guests will experience the best of the wilderness. Tandala is the ideal trails camp as we focus on both the big aspects of nature and the smaller things that most people miss. Being on foot makes you part of the environment, and it allows you to make use of all your senses (see, smell, hear, touch and taste) through the trails.
