President Jacob Zuma announced the death of Madiba just before midnight in a televised address to the nation. He said Madiba had died peacefully at 8.50pm.
Meanwhile, tributes are pouring in from all corners of the world.
United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron said Madiba was a towering figure in our time, a legend in life and now in death - a true global hero.
“Across the country he loved, they will be mourning a man who was the embodiment of grace. Meeting him was one of the great honours of my life.”
Former US president Bill Clinton tweeted a picture of himself holding hands with Mandela, saying: “I will never forget my friend Madiba.”
President of FIFA, world football's governing body, Joseph Sepp Blatter also took to the social network, saying: “My respects to an extraordinary person, probably one of the greatest humanists of our time.”
Zuma said flags around the country would be flown at half-mast from Friday until the funeral.
