ROBBEN ISLAND is a small landmass located just seven kilometers (four miles) off the coast of Cape Town, in Table Bay. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has served as a whaling station, a leper colony and most notably as a prison, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years of his 27 years of incarceration before being elected as the country’s first democratic president. Robben Island is a stark reminder of the apartheid system, and a symbol of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering, and injustice, the maximum-security prison is now a museum where daily tours are conducted by ex-political prisoners.
