ROBBEN ISLAND AND TOWNSHIP TOUR

Meet your guide in the reception area for your transfer to the Waterfront where you will visit the Robben Island Museum. Your tour includes a Robben Island ferry ticket (weather permitting and subject to availability).  11 km out of Cape Town lies Robben island, a true symbol of triumph over adversity. A 3.5 hour tour of the museum on the island begins at the Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront. After a 45-minute ferry ride, visitors take a tour of the former maximum-security jail, followed by a 45 minute bus ride around the island. Robben Island is where former late political prisoner Mr. Nelson Mandela and others developed their concepts for post-apartheid South Africa, concepts that led to the overthrow of a brutal regime and the development of the one of the world’s most liberal democracies.

Note: On request, lunch stop is for your own account at a local formal African restaurant based in the township and entertained with live music and storytelling from the owners. Should you be interested to support our local handmade crafts/souvenir, it is best to have cash on hand.
