The home to Nelson Mandela and countless others during the Apartheid era. A 30-45 minute boat ride to a small island that housed some of the most dangerous individuals at the time. The island is still up and running as a tourist location and many old prisoners are the tour guides.

Robben Island
Posted almost 3 years ago
For nearly 400 years, Robben Island in Table Bay, was a brutal prison where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years during apartheid era. Tours begin with multimedia exhibits at the Nelson Mandela Gateway on the Waterfront before boarding vessels to the island. While on the island, visitors tour the maximum security prison, Mandela's former cell, and the lime quarry where prisoners were forced to endure back-breaking labour. Perhaps the best part about the tour is that the guides are former prisoners of Robben Island who share their experiences and offer insight into the atrocities of apartheid and the power of forgiveness.
