Robben Island (Robbeneiland - Dutch for ‘seal island’) was home to one of the most notorious prisons in South Africa, in use since Dutch settlers came to the country at the end of the 17th century. Today it’s most famous for being the prison where Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid activist and former President of South Africa, was imprisoned for 18 years between 1964 and 1982. Tours include a round-trip ferry ride to the island and a guided tour of the different buildings and historical sites on the island, ending with a visit to Mandela’s cell.
