When traveling to Cape Town South, Africa, take a tour to Robben Island. This island is where Nelson Mandela was in prisoner for 27 years. You will have the opportunity to see his jail cell, the cafeteria and the limestone quarry where Mandela did manual labor for years in blinding sun with no sunglass to protect is eyes from the light reflecting on the limestone. If you are lucky, you will be able to experience a tour guide that was a former prisoner during the time Mandela served. This is a Must-See tour. Make sure you have an entire day for this tour. The boat ride to Robben Island is beautiful. It is a 30 minute trip by catamaran from Cape Town. Additional information about the island can be found at http://robben-island.org.za/.
