Alcatraz aux Etats-Unis et Robben Island en Afrique du Sud figurent parmi les exemples les plus importants. Tandis que certains théoriciens pourraient classer ce genre de tourisme comme du tourisme sombre , cet article témoigne en faveur d’une analyse qui rend compte des multiples nuances dans le marketing et l’interprétation de l’histoire pénale. Existen diversos ejemplos de ello, como la prisión de Robben Island en Sudáfrica convertida actualmente en un museo o sitio patrimonial (STRANGE;KEMPA, 2003); la visita a castillos de esclavos situados en la costa occidental africana (MOWATT; CHANCELLOR, 2011); o bien, en el caso de Estados Unidos, la visita organizada al Fuerte de El Álamo donde la guía cuenta la historia de cómo. This implies that European city DMOs are engaging with the emerging dark tourism market with to varying degrees.

Robben Island thus still focuses more on promoting education, honouring and remembrance. As a result, Robben Island is being perceived as a shade darker than Alcatraz (Stone, 2005: 150). Seaton (1999) states that the supply of dark tourism is not solely directed by costumers’ tastes. They also state that understanding visitors’ motivations is very complex and they result in a multitude of possible reasons. Many tourists visit the cells in Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years out of his 27 years in prison. Robben Island is where he fought for equality for his people, where he got beaten and humiliated and where he thought he would spend his last living hours.

Since Robben Island had played a central role in the legacy and ultimate collapse of apartheid, there was little question in government circles that Robben Island was an apt symbol of hope and reconciliation. Alternative proposals made through public submissions to the Future of Robben Island Committee (established in 1995) included establishing an adult leisure retreat filled with casinos and hotels.

But Robben Island remained deeply isolated – isolation worsened, Mandela wrote, by the proximity of the glass towers of Cape Town. The city looked agonisingly close, as though one could almost reach out and grasp it. (Rather like Alcatraz in San Francisco, a city to which Cape Town has often been compared for its scenic beauty and hedonistic tendencies, Robben Island served as a constant reminder to those on the mainland of the privations being suffered by some. Above all, Nelson Mandela had to fill the endless years without ever knowing how long his imprisonment would last.
