Robben Island – Situated only 12km from Cape Town, Robben Island offers visitors spectacular views of Table Mountain, the city and its coastline, as you make your way to Robben Island and back to the V&A Waterfront by ferry. The Island has been declared as a World Heritage Site and promises a once in a life time experience. The 45 minute bus tour is presented by knowledgeable ex-prisoners who will provide information about the island as well as the prison museum including the former prison cell of Nelson Mandela. Robben Island reflects Nelson Mandela’s great legacy and simultaneously serves as a reminder of South Africa’s past struggles and bright future.
