This famous little windswept Island has captured hearts and minds of travellers to Cape Town and worldwide. Robben Island combined is an old jail, historic site and is on top of the list of things to be doing when visiting Cape Town. Robben Island has become the face of the apartheid oppression story and victory of human rights cruelty in South Africa, and has since been a place of triumph since 1997. Today the Island runs as a museum, facilitating educational programmes for schools and assisting in South African tourism. Robben Island basically runs off the land by generating its own electricity and obtaining water from nine boreholes. The museum also arranges workshops, tours and camps for children and adults, allowing further learning about both the historical and modern day South Africa. Open throughout the year, weather permitting, the island offers glorious and one of a kind views of Table Mountain and Cape Town.
