Robben Island – World Heritage Site: Situated in Table Bay, approximately 12 kilometers north of Cape Town, Robben Island has over the years become synonymous with the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Known as the "Alcatraz" of Cape Town, this former prison (and now a national monument), was "home" to many of South Africa’s freedom fighters, including Nelson Mandela. Robben Island is now a World Heritage Site. It has come to symbolize, not only for South Africa, but also for the entire world, the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity. The island also offers sweeping views of Table Mountain and the West Coast.
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
