Robben Island and the Waterfront

 

This was a penal island until recently, with its most famous inhabitant being Nelson Mandela, who spent 17 of his 27 years of incarceration there. The tours last 3 and a half hours from arrival to departure and are conducted by former political prisoners. Finish the day with a contrast so much the very fabric of all that is South African, by going shopping at the Waterfront, a working harbour. A shopping environment that offers all the elegance and options of the first world South Africa.
