Title: Robben Island booking

Cape town day tours
For whatever reason you are in Cape Town you
certainly cant miss a trip to the famous Robben
Island. Lets explore the island where Nelson
Mandela was imprisoned for eighteen years for his
beliefs. Robben Island is renowned all over the
globe as a place of banishment, exile,
imprisonment and isolation. For almost four
hundred years, colonial and apartheid rulers
banished those they considered as social
outcasts, political troublemakers and the
unwanted of society to this 575 hectare rocky
outcrop in Table Bay.
The Islands reluctant occupants included slaves,
religious and political leaders who stood against
Dutch colonialism in East Asia, bothersome local
Khoikhoi African leaders who opposed Dutch and
British development in South Africa, leprosy
sufferers other sick and mentally disturbed
French Vichy prisoners of war and most recently,
political opponents of the apartheid regime in
South Africa and Namibia.
During the apartheid years Robben Island became
globally recognized for its institutional
cruelty. Some freedom fighters spent more than a
quarter of a century in prison for their beliefs.
Yet individual such as Nelson Mandela came
forward to lead South Africa to democracy, with a
message of forgiveness, reunion and hope. Those
jailed on the island succeeded in turning a
prison hell-hole into a sign of freedom
personal liberty.
Your Robben Island tour starts from the Nelson
Mandela Gateway at the Clock Tower Precinct
inside Cape Towns VA Waterfront. The Gateway is
the mainland front door to Robben Island,
representing the significance of the island in
South Africas young democracy. The Gateway
accommodates a 150-seater boardroom, auditorium
and a Robben Island Museum shop amidst other
amenities. Digital and interactive presentation
spaces on all 3 floors of the Gateway building
offers the tourist with a chronological
perspective of Robben Islands Maximum Security
Prison and also reflecting the wider extension of
the islands past.
Robben Island gets more than 300 thousand
tourists every year, with the highest portion
being South Africans. More than 95 percent of
tourists have articulated their Robben Island
tours as an uplifting and eye-opening experience.
And there is still so much more to see during
your visit. The isle is home to more than 100
species of bird, while during your boat trip over
from Cape Town you may even be lucky enough to
spy Southern Right whales, Cape Fur seals and
Dusky and Heaviside dolphins in the water.
