What people are saying:

Because the tour group time is relatively tight, mainly to visit other attractions such as penguins, so Robben Island guide pointed to the introduction at the beach, this is the place where Mandela, the most famous person in South Africa, has been imprisoned

Additional Information

Introduction

Ferry tickets this World Heritage Site are often sold out days in advance. This was not always the case. At one time, taking a boat to his Table Bay island meant you were unlikely to be leaving any time soon; this was the place they sent the apartheid-era freedom fighters, the lepers, and the mentally ill. The island is most often noted as the place that Nelson Mandela, current South African president Jacob Zuma, and other political activists were jailed by the ruling minority. Some of the men who lived for decades in the prison have chosen to come back. When you tour the island prison, you will be guided by someone who knows the place intimately: a former inmate.
