Cape Town is a city we've been to a few times over the years, and it has a number of qualities that keep calling us back. It's beautifully located on the tip of Africa, with iconic Table Mountain looming over the city. This is one of the most multi-cultural cities in Africa, with numerous cultures converging to create an environment all its own. Visiting Cape Town is a real treat and we highly recommend making the trip.
Robben Island is located just off the coast of Cape Town and was the home of a notorious prison for political prisoners during the time of Apartheid in South Africa. Nelson Mandela was jailed for 18 years here. There is an amazing tour to help visitors learn about the injustices committed on Robben Island. If you do make it to Cape Town, this is a can't-miss destination. You'll come away with a true appreciation of what South Africa's freedom fighters went through.
