#robbenislandmuseum #robbenislandtour😭❤️✊🏾 #capetownsouthafrica #lumina #relishtheexperience
On our way this morning to sit at the foot of the mother continent and study the impact and legacy of the great Madiba. Great time for cultural engagement, experiential learning through competitive sport, and engaging in meaningful, impactful service work that enhances us as much as those we help. #capetownsouthafrica #robbenislandmuseum #madiba #experientiallearningjourney #moreinfourmoreinalifetime #globalizedlearning

Huge respect, honour, admiration and endless appreciation to all the brave, strong and enduring political prisoners who contributed to making South Africa a democracy. My heart is very heavy but at the same time I feel uplifted. An emotional journey this visit has been #robbenislandprison #robbenislandmuseum #capetown #lovemycountry #veryproudsouthafrican
View of Cape Town, and the incredible Table Mountain, from the former maximum security prison where Nelson Mandela and others were held captive.  #timelessmoments #awestruck #robbenislandmuseum #thoughtprovoking #capetownskies
Robben Island. A place of shame in the past but a place of hope for the future

Sport has long played a role in South Africa’s struggle for freedom and our road to reconciliation. ⠀
⠀
In 1972, while the rest of the world were watching the Olympic Games in Munich, prisoners on Robben Island held their own Summer Games. The prisoners began their planning months in advance and games catered for all ages with many sub-classes for more senior players as well as a variety of events from the spoon-and-potatoes race to the 80 metres Veterans Race.⠀

Secure a ticket for the ferry to Robben Island and visit the prison where Nelson Mandela was kept during Apartheid. 
Learn about the dramatic history of South Africa through the voice of one of the former prisoners. Robben Island has been used for the isolation of mainly political prisoners. 
The Dutch settlers were the first to use Robben Island as a prison. 
Nelson Mandela, Kgalema Motlanthe, and Jacob Zuma to name a few.

Robben Island is accessible to visitors through tours that depart from Cape Town's waterfront.

Today marks my 5 year work anniversary at Robben Island Museum. It has been quite a journey in a very interesting diverse Company. RIM has helped me grow in my career and as a person through the magnitude of knowledge and experiences collected so far. Despite all the obstacles, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to work ❤️. #5 #years #work #anniversary #🌈 #longest #relationship #robbenislandmuseum #love #life #❤️ #selfie #girl #lgbt #blueeyes
Robben Island is known for being the place former South African president Nelson Mandela was jailed for 18 years.  Today, we toured the island graveyard, the lime quarry, Robert Sobukwe’s house, the Bluestone quarry, and the maximum security prison including Nelson Mandela’s cell.  My favorite part of the tour was the limestone quarry where Mr. Mandela worked. The convicts broke rocks and shoveled lime for paving the island’s roads. Besides being strenuous, the work was unsafe. Glare reflected from the white rock impaired Mr. Mandela’s eyesight, and quarry dust may have led to the respiratory problems that killed him in 2013 at age 95.  This stone pile has historic significance, but after the fall of Apartheid. After Nelson Mandela was elected president of South Africa, almost 1000 former political prisoners attended a reunion on Robben Island. As the visitors toured the quarry, Nelson Mandela walked off to the side and dropped a rock onto the ground. This action was followed by many of the visitors, to form a type of cairn or rock memorial to their time on the Island.

🇿🇦 Robben Island was a fascinating and humbling place to visit, seeing the prison cell where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years and being given a guided tour by an ex-inmate who made everyone in the room cry with his speech about the apartheid era 🌊 #RobbenIsland #NelsonMandela

Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 18 of the 27 years he served behind bars before the fall of apartheid. One of South Africa's historical landmarks and one of the iconic historical visits while in Cape Town. Take a 30-45 minute ferry from the Nelson Mandela Gateway in the V&A Waterfront over to the island and spend approximately 2 hours exploring the maximum security prison, Nelson Mandela's jail cell, the lime quarry and Robert Sobukwes House and much more. You will experience the island by foot and by bus with a guide taking you back in time through one of South Africa's most defining eras. Ferrys depart at 09h00, 11h00 and 13h00 and tickets need to be booked well in advance on their website. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visit our website to get your very own free customized sample itinerary on what to do in Cape Town. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #capetown #capetownsouthafrica #travel  #traveltocapetown #visitcapetown #instatravel #instatraveling #robbenisland #nelsonmandela #waterfront #ferry #thursday #maximumprison #museum #capetowninfo #apartheid #southafrica #nelsonmandelaprison #southafricahistory #landmark #limequarry #capetownisawesome #tour #capetowntour #history #bookyourtickets #capetownguide #capetowntourism #robbenislandmuseum

Happy 100th  Birthday to Nelson Mandela ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼 During my trip in Cape Town South Africa I had the life changing opportunity to visit the Robben Island Jail which is now a museum. I remembered getting chills when I entered Nelson Mandela’s cell. The crazy part about this is I had a crazy hangover from partying the night before and almost didn’t come. I’m glad what ever strength I had that day I drug myself out of bed and went. Definitely a powerful and life changing experience. One thing I admire about Nelson Mandela along with the likes of Malcolm X and Maya Angelou, and Dr Martin Luther King Jr is, none of them were perfect. They all had faults or shall I say hard life lessons and experiences that they didn’t allow to define how they would be remembered once they were gone. I say this to say you don’t have to be perfect and walk  the straight and narrow to make a difference and be someone’s hero ❤️

"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered" - Nelson Mendela.

In honor of Nelson Mendela Day I'm posting a couple of pictures of the time I got to visit the Gateway to Robben Island Museum. Once my blog #adventuresofaphoenix is up this will definitely be a story I share fully but I will say I am looking forward to returning to Cape Town and continuing the journey I started there.
.
.
.
I felt at peace and completely at home in South Africa and myself and many others have Nelson Mendela (along with others who fought so very hard against apartheid) to thank for that! .

I've held off from posting about the Robben Island Museum because it has been one of the most complex spaces to visit. Robben Island has a history of being a difficult place to inhabit. It holds many difficult stories, from Leper Cemetary to Prison. It is most infamously recognized as the place where Madiba was held but it is SO IMPORTANT to acknowledge that he was not alone, neither physically nor in fight.  Many men were kept on Robben Island, many families traumatized. The most dangerous prisoners were sent there which included non-violent political prisoners who worked to erode the system of apartheid. The Sobukwe House was the residence of Robert Sobukwe who was held there for many years though he was not a prisoner and he was considered most dangerous and kept from interacting with the prisoners . The letter that you see in the shots is missing pieces because the prison staff would censor the mail..... In the spirit of agency, many of the guided tours are given by former prisoners who were held on the island. It was hurtful, and dank, but there is a reminder of resilience and resistance that is evident all over the island. Robben Island cannot be summarized, although I've tried. There's not much that can do this justice(no pun intended)

Since the end of the 17th century, Robben Island has been used for the isolation of mainly political prisoners.The maximum security prison for political prisoners closed in 1991. In 1999 the island was declared a World Heritage Site.
.
Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison here, along with over 3000 political prisoners during their fight to end Apartheid. Prisoners performed long hours of enforced labour smashing stone in the lime quarry. Mandela and many other prisoners, suffered permanent eye damage from the glare off of the white stone.

Robben Island, the unique symbol of “the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering and injustice” with a rich 500 year old multi-layered history. .

It's an island in Table Bay, 6,9 km west of the coast of Bloubergstrand, Cape Town, South Africa. The name is Dutch for "seal island."
.
Today we saw on the island the graveyard of people who died from leprosy, the Lime Quarry, Robert Sobukwe’s house, the Bluestone quarry, the army and navy bunkers, the Maximum Security Prison where thousands of South Africa’s freedom fighters were incarcerated for years and a viewing of Nelson Mandela’s cell.
