Get ready for a great day uncovering the history behind the notorious Robben Island, famous for housing a prison that once held Nelson Mandela and other freedom fighters during the apartheid era.

Your guide will fetch you at your accommodation and drop you off at the V&A Waterfront, where you'll board a ferry and begin your journey as you venture out to the Island.
