It is impossible to picture Cape Town without the iconic outline of Table Mountain in the background. The view from below is one thing, but it is quite another to be atop the mountain. Here one is afforded breathtaking uninterrupted panoramic views of Cape Town, Robben Island; the Peninsula with its beautiful beaches and beyond. A flat plateau gives this mountain its unique shape and when the conditions are right a mass of cloud streams over the edge, giving the mountain its table cloth. Visitors and locals alike flock to the mountain for hiking, sight-seeing and other activities.
The city was established as a Dutch halfway station in the 16th century, providing protection and refreshment to weary sailors on their journey around the tip of Africa on route to the Dutch East India. What would become a boiling pot of cultural diversities and foreign influences, it grew steadily through the centuries off French and Dutch settlers, Indonesian and Madagascan slaves as well as English colonists
The Castle of Good Hope is a star fort built in the 17th century. Originally located on the coastline of Table Bay, following land reclamation the fort is now located in the heart of the city. The Castle is the oldest existing colonial building in South Africa and is considered the best preserved example of a Dutch East Indian Company fort in the world which also serves as a museum.
Positioned up against the neckline of Signal Hill, the Malay Quarter (also known as the Bo-Kaap) is a charming and energetic area that was somehow bypassed in the forced removal policies of the Apartheid government. In the early 18th century, a multitude of slaves from Java, Ceylon and other Far Eastern regions were brought to Cape Town, with their descendants known as the Cape Malay’s having settled here after slavery was abolished. This area is characterised by its multi-coloured cottages and steep cobbled streets, as well as its exotic Malay culture. No tours in the Mother City would be complete without a visit to the Bo-Kaap.
