Robben Island Two Tier Pricing


Guest : Marongoa Ramaboa 

INTRODUCTION OF TWO-TIER PRICING FOR ROBBEN ISLAND TOURS
Robben Island Museum will be introducing a two-tier pricing system, providing locals
with a separate rate from international visitors, that will come into effective from June
2019. The Robben Island tour includes a ferry return trip from Cape Town, transport on
the island, a guided island tour and a guided prison tour by an ex-political prisoner.
The different pricing structure will provide for additional revenue that will meet rising
conservation needs on the island. The island is home to various indigenous birds,
reptiles and mammal species – funding from the tours helps to maintain conservation
efforts of the ecosystem.
The funds generated from the tour fees allows the Robben Island Museum to protect
and persevere the Island’s rich history as a World Heritage Site. A world-class heritage
site requires a lot of efforts to balance the conservation of the tangible heritage
elements with the mission of increasing local access to the Island.
General tour prices currently cost R360 per adult and R200 per child under the age of
18 for both locals and internationals.
New prices:
Locals: R380 per adult, R200 (children age 2-18)
International: R550 per adult, R300 (children age 2 -18)
