# Iziko Slave Lodge is hosting an exhibition dealing with the geographical links and cultural similarities of slaves who were captured from regions around the Indian Ocean. Although abused and forced to live a barely human existence, these slaves brought with them both tangible and intangible evidence of a diverse cultural heritage which manifested itself in language, fashion, craftsmanship, cuisine and even architecture. The exhibition will take place weekdays from 10:00am till 16:30pm and on Saturdays from 10:00am to 13:00pm. Entrance fee for adults is R10 and R5 for pensioners and students. Contact (021) 481 3836.
