This is a REAL interactive experience with one of the countries oldest established communities- dating back to their forced arrival to these shores as captives in the 1600's. As their lands in the East were being occupied by European Colonists- dissenters were loaded onto sailing ships and banished to other colonies around the world- the Cape of Good Hope being one. Begin with a Walking Tour of the Historic, Heritage Protected area of cobbled streets, colourful Cape Georgian homes, community corner stores that stock everything, and a number of mosques dating from 1795 to 1958.
