A short boat cruise to Robben Island, just over seven kilometers from Cape Town harbor, stand inside the prison cell where South Africa’s most beloved legend, Nelson Mandela, endured 27 years of hard labor and solitary confinement to become arguably the most iconic and compassionate leader of our era.
An exciting cable car ride up Table Mountain provides panoramic views over the “Mother City” and other attractions include the Cultural History Museum, the Castle of Good Hope and the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
