Robben Island, South Africa-where Nelson Mandela was a political prisoner. Ferries leaving Capetown have the caption "We Are Free". Very touristy but almost a must - probably jam packed during Christmas though :/
Die Damhuis, Melkbosstrand, Cape Town. Wonderful food and décor. By the beach. The "Damhuis" (literal Dam House) was originally a shed on the farm De Melkbosch that was awarded to C.P. Brand by Governor van de Graaff circa 1785 as reward for services rendered. With the passage of time the "Damhuis" was utilised as a residence and underwent a number of changes up to "Die Damhuis" Restaurant to preserve the historical importance for the future generation.
