Robben Island and Table Mountain

Massive day today starting with a boat trip to Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned) and ending with a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain.

The boat trip out to Robbin Island provided great views of the Capetown coastline with Table Mountain dominating the skyline. After a bus trip around the island, complete with informative commentary we were treated to a tour of the jail by an ex-inmate. It was quite a moving experience seeing Nelson Mandala’s tiny cell.

Our Capetown guide, Frank, then accompanied us in the cable car to the top of Table Mountain. He then showed us around to all the spectacular viewing spots. Breathtaking vistas everywhere we looked, Capetown and surrounds looked amazing from this vantage point.
