Robben Island

The home away from home of Nelson Mandela

Robben Island is more about South African culture than most landmarks. Nelson Mandela was imprisoned here for more than 20 years during Apartheid. Today, the island has been turned into a cultural heritage museum.

A visit to Robben Island requires a trip by boat. The ferry boat leaves V & A Waterfront several times a day. Please consider getting sea sickness pills if you think there is a risk you might get queasy.
