A day of touring to Uthando (Love) Projects and Robben Island 

Part day with Uthando.  Unthando (Love) South Africa, a unique and innovative Non Profit and Fair Trade in Tourism accredit company.  The aim of Uthando is to raise funds and other forms of assistance for community development projects in South Africa.  This field trip gives us an insight into the remarkable stories that make life in South Africa so interesting, dynamic and very importantly, inspiring. The tours are interactive, meeting the people at the projects, learning about their work and way of life, firsthand.   

robbin islandVisit Robben Island – From the 17th to the 20th centuries, Robben Island served as a place of banishment, isolation and imprisonment. Once “home” to some of South Africa’s most famous political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, Today it is a World Heritage Site and museum, a poignant reminder to the newly democratic South Africa of the price paid for freedom.

 On June 12, 1964, Nelson Mandela received a life sentence for committing sabotage against South Africa’s apartheid government, avoiding a possible death sentence.


 A homage to Nelson Mandela: “When You Come Back”

To Tata Madiba

We must give something to the world and not just take from it!

‘Mai Boo Ye Y Africa’ 

Sing Now Africa, Sing Loud, Sing to the People!  

Let them give something to the world and not just take from it.  

We ringing the bells, when you come back; we beating the drums, when you come back!


In the late afternoon you will have a chance to either enjoy shopping Waterfront after we return from Robben Island.  Dinner either at hotel or in town.
