2. Robben Island Tour
n 1964, an anti-apartheid revolutionary named Nelson Mandela was arrested and brought to South Africa’s Robben Island, just west of Cape Town. He would spend the next 18 years imprisoned in an 8x7-foot cell, forced to do hard labor, and permitted only one visitor a year. Even so, Mandela went on to become his country’s first black president, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, and known globally for his significant contributions to human rights and social justice.
The wealth of culture, the historical development of our townships and the traditional history in the everyday life of our township residents is a priceless resource that has been incorporated in the local tourist product to the mutual benefit of tourists and local residents alike.
