Robben Island Tours

Robben Island, the unique symbol of “the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering and injustice” with a rich 500 year old multi-layered history, is visited every year by thousands of people eager to understand and honour the important aspects of South Africa’s history that the Island represents.

Embark on a fully guided tour to South Africa’s famous World Heritage Site: walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela, tour the island’s rich fauna and flora treasures, visit the lime quarry where the political prisoners worked, and see the village where former warders lived. The standard tour to Robben Island is 3.5 hours long, including the two half-hour ferry rides.
