A city with a unique history

Cape Town has a unique, but also tragic history. Take the boat to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, or visit the lesser-known Slave Lodge where you can learn more about the history of slavery in South Africa. The District Six Museum is also an impressive visitor attraction.
