South African Hall of Fame

Opened in 2016, this celebratory exhibition pays homage in words and photos to South Africa's high achievers. Most come from the world of sports, but there are also some musicians and actors among the stars. Think golfer Gary Player, the 1995 World Cup–winning South African rugby team and musicians Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
