Visit the Robben Island Museum on these discounts for Africa Month.

While Africa Day falls on 25 May 2021, we’ll be celebrating Africa’s triumphs and tribulations at the Robben Island Museum all month with up to 25% group ticket discounts. 

 “Robben Island Museum is arguably one of Africa’s most renowned symbols of her struggle for freedom and stands as a reminder of the strength of the human spirit, particularly in a time when South Africa and Africa at large are still yearning for true freedom,”

– Siphuxolo Mazwi, RIM Senior Manager: Marketing and Tourism.

Robben Island Museum Day

Following the hard-knock the COVID-19 pandemic has put on South Africa’s economy, RIM put together the following discounts to make a visit more accessible to locals: 

  • From two visitors, 10% off
  • From four visitors, 15% off
  • From eight visitors, 20% off
  • From 10 visitors, 25% off

 “We are pleased to see an increase in young people visiting the island and want to use this opportunity to encourage youth groups, civic organisation and social clubs to take advantage of the reduced ticket prices for groups. In the true spirit of celebrating African heritage and freedom, and her rich tapestry of colours, textures, flavours and aromas, visitors are encouraged to proudly wear their traditional outfits for their trip to the island. Let us shake off the Coronavirus gloom and indulge in colours from Cape to Cairo, Madagascar to Morocco,”

said Mazwi.

Get prepared to leave with a wealth of knowledge as you experience gripping stories dating back to the early 1300s. All this is brought to life by knowledgeable guides and former political prisoners who take you down memory lane in the finest details. 

While experiencing an abundance of wildlife and a plethora of plant species, you’ll be greeted by a Springbuck grazing or an African Penguin passing by casually.  

“While group visits are encouraged, strict COVID-19 protocols remain in place both on the ferry and on the island, with COVID marshals continuously monitoring the situation. We also encourage visitors to purchase their tickets online, via Webtickets to avoid queueing at the Gateway,”

concluded Mazwi.

  • The ferry will operate Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, at 11h00.
  • Additional tours will be made available if demand increases. 
  • Adults pay R400 and children under 18 pay R210.
