Declared a World Heritage Site a tour of Robben Island takes 3 and a half hours and lasts a lifetime in your mind. The ferry ride approaching Robben Island and returning to V&A Waterfront across Table Bay displays a spectacular view over the city, Table Mountain and its coastline.

The island environment is a natural haven to a wide variety of wildlife and a manmade reminder of South Africa's history. Some tour guides are ex-political prisoners whose first hand accounts will serve as commentary on the 45 minute bus ride tour of the island and the tour of the prison museum including the former prison cell of Nelson Mandela.The island gives testimony to Nelson Mandela's great legacy and serves simultaneously as a reminder of South Africa's shaded past and bright future.

"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered." Nelson Mandela
