Visit Nelson Mandela’s cell while learning more about the history of South Africa.

When visiting the Island, you will be able to go on a tour around the Robben Island Museum, where you will be able to learn about Nelson Mandela’s time there, allowing you to actually visit the cell in which he spent his time on the island, and the history of South Africa.

Measuring 1.9-kilometres wide and 3.3-kilometres long, Robben Island was used as place to banish prisoner in the late 17th Century, prior to which it was a leper colony where people were voluntarily quarantined.

Robben Island is renowned as a dangerous sailing area, with many shipwrecks resting upon the ocean floors surrounding the island, as well a history checkered with many ships report missing from the area. As a result, Jan van Riebeck started the first navigational fire on Robben Island, which has since evolved to the Island hosting the only working flashing lighthouse in the country.

When visiting Robben Island during your South African safari, you may be lucky to come across the many different animals that call the Island their home. These include rabbits, seals, birds, penguins and buck. The best time to visit this famous Island is in the summer season when the warm weather makes the ferry trip, Museum tour and amazing scenery all that little bit more enjoyable.

We are happy to tailor-make a Robben Island tour that will meet your intended departure dates and budget, so please feel free to contact us with any enquiries that you might have. We also encourage you to read about the many other South African attractions listed beneath that you may wish to include on your safari to South Africa.
