Take a fascinating trip through South Africa’s difficult past with a tour of Cape Town and Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years
in prison. Visit the District Six Museum to get an in-depth look at the troubling history of apartheid in South Africa, and see how that system still
impacts modern life in townships like Langa and Gugulethu. See how residents of these townships work to improve their lives and communities. Take a
ferry to UNESCO-listed Robben Island for a tour of the former prison for political prisoners. Tour options Half Day or Full Day. Allow us to
customise these tours to your interest and requirements.
After getting picked up at your hotel or accommodation, your first stop is the District Six Museum. This museum gives you an excellent
look at the history of apartheid in this area, how it began in 1950 with the enforced eviction of more than 60,000 black South Africans
from the district in order to make it an all-white neighborhood.
With this history in mind, your next stop is the township of Langa, the oldest township in Cape Town. Townships first sprang up under apartheid
as places for non-whites to live. They were always in unsavory areas, and were essentially cut off from city infrastructure. In Langa with
your guide, stop into a shebeen (tavern), go to a local market and visit a traditional healer. Next, visit Guga S’thebe Arts & Culture Centre
to see the work being done to improve the lives of the Langa community, most of whom are Xhosa.
Head back toward Cape Town for the last township visit, Gugulethu. This township was originally built specifically for migrant workers from the
Transkei region of the Eastern Cape. Here, again, there are signs of both progress and poverty — shacks alongside restaurants and night clubs.
Back in Cape Town, enjoy some free time in the afternoon at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where you can get lunch (own expense) before
getting into a ferry to ride across Table Bay to Robben Island.
Today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site where former political prisoners give tours.
See Mandela’s cell in the prison — it’s roughly seven square feet (0.6 square meters) — and hear what life was like for him and the other
prisoners there, including how he was made to dig in a quarry when officials found out he was acting as a leader during a prisoner rebellion.
The tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel or accommodation.

the coast of Gansbaai for a full-day tour. Learn about great white sharks from your marine-biologist guide, and then dive into the water
in a cage to observe sharks in their natural habitat. Breakfast, snacks and hotel-pick up and drop off are included.

Start at Gansbaai’s shark diving center, where you’ll eat breakfast, and meet your guides for the day. After eating, get fitted into the
appropriate diving gear.
Climb into the specialized diving boat, complete with a shark diving cage, for the 20-minute trip into the ocean. Your captain heads for
Dyer Island, choosing an ideal place to stop for the dive.
The cage is secured to the side of the boat, and during the cage dives it stays a few feet (meters) below the surface of the water. This
means it’s easy for you to get out of the water at any point when you want to.
The boat stays anchored in this diving spot for roughly two hours, depending on shark activity. During that time, there are drinks and
snacks for you aboard the boat. After the boat returns to Gansbaai, enjoy light refreshments back at the Great White House. You can
choose to buy a professional video of your shark cage diving experience (own expense).
Your experience concludes with a drop-off at your hotel or accommodation in Cape Town.

About an hour and a half from Cape Town, the coastal town, Hermanus is famous for its whale-watching. There are several points in town where you can get
great views of whales from the shore.
Southern Right Whales spend the months of July-November in the water off the coast of Hermanus to breed, giving visitors plenty of chances to see
whales up close. Seals and dolphins are also abundant in the area.
Enjoy free time to explore Hermanus, browsing in local art galleries and curio shops or grabbing a bite for lunch (own expense). You can also opt for
a more in-depth sea-going advent ure by booking a boat ride for another whale-watching experience (own expense).
After leaving Hermanus, stop at a nearby winery for a wine tasting session before the return trip to Cape Town. Travel along the
dramatic coastal road along False Bay, and – time permitting – stop at Stoney Point to see some of the resident African penguins.
Keep an eye on the water as you drive – you never know when you’ll see yet another whale.
