Robben Island

Robben Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a symbol of both South Africa’s triumph over adversity and its fight for freedom.

 

Located in Table Bay, a short ferry ride from Cape Town, it was once a place of imprisonment for political dissidents, most notably Nelson Mandela during apartheid.

 

Today, visitors can tour the island and its former prison, gaining insight into the harsh conditions and the resilience of those who were incarcerated here.

 

The experience offers a profound understanding of South Africa’s history and the struggle for equality. The island also boasts stunning views of Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula.
