What makes this island truly significant in the history of South Africa, is that this was the home of Nelson Mandela for 18 years. First used as a prison by the Dutch settlers, the island was also at one stage used as a leper colony and animal quarantine station. Since the fall of apartheid the island has been declared a national heritage site and the prison opened for the public as a museum.
During your visit at the island you will be taken on a guided tour inside the prison and get to see inside the actual prison cell where Nelson Madela spent his sentence.
