Robben Island hotels
Whilst Cape Town’s Robben Island had been used throughout history as a Dutch prison camp and a leper colony, it is most famous for its more recent history as a political prison during the days of the apartheid era, housing famous detainees like South African Presidents Nelson Mandela, Kgalema Motlanthe, and Jacob Zuma. In 1996 the island was officially declared a National Monument as well as a National Museum. And in 2006 it was named a National Heritage Site. Visitors to Robben Island may enjoy tours provided by the Robben Island Museum or attend cultural and heritage celebrations at the Visitor Centre.
Cape Town International Airport is twenty-kilometres from the Nelson Mandela Gateway and only slightly further from the V& A Waterfront Harbour, both of which launch ferries heading to Robben Island four times a day. You can also access to the “Mother City” via intercity train from Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and other major South African cities and by Metro rail from neighbouring towns like Paarl and Strand. The Cape Town Harbour Metro station serves the sea ports, and once you are on the island, you can ride the museum bus to get around.
