HomeRobben Island
Robben Island

In the 20th century, Robben Island was a notorious prison for political prisoners under the South African apartheid regime. The former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, spent no fewer than 18 years on Robben Island, out of the total of 27 years of his imprisonment.

Today, Robben Island has been transformed into a museum and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The ferry that sails to Robben Island departs from Cape Town’s famous Waterfront. It is the same boat that was used to transport the prisoners back and forth to the prison. The visit to Robben Island starts with a guided tour of the infamous prison, including Nelson Mandela’s cell. You then go on a bus tour around the island, stopping at the penguin colony before sailing back to Cape Town.
