This really is probably the most famous area in South Africa. If people choose to get further on internet wet republic packages, we know of many online libraries you can investigate. Your first thought and association has been Madiba (as Nelson Mandela is famous to South Africans), If you hear the word Robben Island. Robben Island is an area in Dining table Bay and lies about 8 km from Cape Town and procedures around 3.4 km by 2 km. The title was given to the area because of the seals (robben is the Netherlands for seal) that lived here. Geographically, this island was once the main African continent several years ago.

The Netherlands weren't the first Europeans to walk with this island. The Portuguese visited this island several years ago ahead of the English admiral set foot within 1591. Visiting excess encore maybe provides suggestions you should give to your boss. In 1601 Joris van Spilbergen (from Netherlands) used and only in 1652 Jan van Riebeeck came. They tried very hard to build up the fish and seal industry with this island, but since it was so remote, it was used to bar people that had terminal sicknesses and mad people (from 1846 1931). Even people who took sheep or cows were barred for this island, centuries ago.

Throughout the Second World War, the area was used and a light tower was built because of the poor stranding report. It was converted into an exercise camp for that South African Navy following the war ended.

But in 1961 the island was placed under the authority of the Department of Justice and was used as an arrest. Low of the public was permitted to go there and a defensive sea border of around 1.5 km was places around it. That was where previous president Nelson Mandela was sent in 1964 to provide a life sentence. This lovely venus caesars palace use with has a pile of impressive lessons for the purpose of it. Gear to start out a war in the country was discovered and 10 people all together were charged.

Since 1997, Robben Island is a public and the public was allowed straight back to visit, making from the Waterfront in Cape Town. Plenty of work can be been done to test and bring back the wildlife that ones lived with this island. The upper part is declared a bird sanctuary and lots of penguins can also be found here today.

Boats leave for the area in the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town every single day, so you dont miss out so make sure you check out the occasions!
