TOUR OVERVIEW
Robben Island Tour

This day tour from Cape Town journeys you through the darkest phase of the South African past. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Robben Island is a historic attraction layered with the harrowing tales of grief and torment, being once completely isolated and served as the site of a leper colony, military base, and most of all the infamous prison for more than 350 years. Many eminent leaders including Autshumato, Robert Sobukwe, and Nelson Mandela were imprisoned here.

Tranquilly placed in the center of Table Bay, it is now a living museum which evokes an influential sense of the country’s tortuous history and apartheid era. To begin your Robben Island exploration, board a ferry from Nelson Mandela Gateway at Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Watch out for dolphins and take in the astonishing views of Table Mountain and Cape Town Stadium during your 30-minute sail. After you disembark, head straight to the iconic Robben Island Prison Museum.

As you wander around the prison, your guide who is mostly a former political prisoner will provide an insight into how grueling the life used to be for its residents. Know about Censor’s Office where letters to and from prisoners were censored; read diet chart that was designed according to the prisoners’ skin color; and go through the list of those unfortunate prisoners who were never able to make out of the prison. Further, see Prison No. 7 in B-section where the greatest anti-apartheid activist, Nelson Mandela, was held for 18 years of total 27 years of his imprisonment.

There are also many attractions to explore on this tour, from Leper Cemetery and Limestone Quarry which witnessed the hard labor of political prisoners to the green-domed mosque known as Kramat and the Church of the Good Shepherd erected by the lepers. So come step back in time and return with long-lasting memories.

Recommended to every one!

South Africa’s history always fascinated me, and I got a chance to know more with the Robben Island Tour. I booked it through Rayna Tours as I got a great price on it. First, I took a rather enjoyable ferry ride to the island. Aboard the island, was the Prison museum. It is really well kept, and all the information provided painted a vivid picture of the sad and unfortunate things that happened their. This was quite an enriching tour, and all history buffs should do it.

Will travel to Cape Town again!

like to take my kids to at least one historical place on each tour. In our South Africa trip, we chose Robben Island. This place was a leper colony, military base and a prison that held Nelson Mandela. I was quite excited to show my kids this place. Rayna Tours arranged for the ferry and museum tickets at a good price. It was quite a fascinating tour, and me and my kids learned a lot about South Africa’s sad history. This is good and educational tour that should be experienced by all.
