The District Six Museum recalls the history of a community that was forcibly removed in the apartheid era. In 1966 the National Party government declared District Six a “white group area” and moved thousands of residents (mostly colored and black people) to the Cape Flats, where they had few facilities or means of making a living. Nowadays, former residents and their descendants are rebuilding their memories and cultural heritage.

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. Every year, thousands of tourists visit the island to understand South Africa’s past and view the tiny cell where Nelson Mandela lived for 18 years. Our professional tour guide will drop you at your hotel or guesthouse doorsteps after dinner.
