Robben Island Tour

Board the Robben Island Ferry at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and take part in a half day Robben Island tour. For nearly 400 years, Robben Island was a place of banishment, exile, isolation and imprisonment for political " troublemakers" and social outcasts. During the apartheid years, Robben Island became internationally known for its institutional brutality. Some freedom fighters spent more than a quarter of a century in prison for their beliefs. Nelson Mandela was one of them. Those imprisoned on the Island succeeded on a psychological and political level in turning a prison 'hell-hole' into a symbol of freedom and personal liberation. Robben Island came to symbolize, not only for South Africa and the African continent but also for the entire world, the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity. You will be escorted around the island by an ex-political prisoner, and given insight into the past and how the human spirit triumphs.
