Sharing My Story

The story of the close friendship between a prison warden and a prisoner serving a life sentence is unique and unparalleled.  Christo would like to share his story with interested groups – be they tourists, conferences, corporates, schools or special interest groups.  

If you would like Christo to meet your group, introduce his book to them and invite them to buy a signed copy,  please CONTACT US to book a time.  From 1 August 2018 you will have the following options:

  • BREAKING NEWS –  from May 2020: Christo is available to share his story remotely on ZOOM or MS TEAMS – email us for more details! 
  • A 35 to 40-minute talk about his life with Mandela – preceded by a short video on his and Mandela’s lives. This is ideal for small and large groups – often the hotel where the group is staying will offer a room for this talk.  Venue and time can be arranged to suit your requirements.

  • Lunch or dinner with a small group of guests – ideally a maximum of 12.  Again, at a time and venue of your choice.

  • Private tours of Robben Island with Christo as the guide – ideally up to 30 guests 

  • Helicopter rides with NAC – a short trip over Robben Island OR our “Freedom Flight” day trip which includes Robben Island, Pollsmoor and Victor Verster (now Drakenstein Correctional Facility); plus lunch at a Mont Rochelle in Franschhoek.

  • A three hour chartered trip around Robben Island with Christo on the Only One yacht or the yacht of your choice
  • Corporate or team-building events.
