Discover South Africa’s tumultuous history on a moving tour of Robben Island
Robben Island was a training and defence station in World War II, and it has also served as a place of banishment, isolation and imprisonment, becoming world famous as the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years. Today it is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As your ferry arrives at the island, you are joined by a local guide, often someone who spent time there during the Apartheid years and is thus able to give a personal and often moving account of the experience. You will also see the cell where Nelson Mandela spent a large part of his life.
