BO-KAAP

Discover the fascinating history and unique culture of the Bo-Kaap, tucked away under the slopes of Signal Hill. Formerly known as the Malay Quarter, this bright and colourful neighbourhood has a rich Cape Malay culture with roots as old as Cape Town itself.

Visitors are able to see the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood by foot while also gaining insight into the district’s vivid history, culture and scenery on a free walking tour by Nielsen Tours. Trips depart three times a day each day, starting from Green Market Square on Shortmarket Street. On this tour guests will get an overview of Bo-Kaap’s best known landmarks, including the colourful houses, hidden places to find local beers, multiple mosques and historical restaurants and shops. This informative, fun and free tour is simply not to be missed!

Hout Bay & Chapmans Peak

Get a feel for the history of this former fishing village by going to the Hout Bay Harbour to take a boat to Seal Island (Dyer Island). For boat based whale watching and informative eco-trips around Dyer Island, visit Whale Watch SA. If you suffer from motion sickness take some tablets beforehand, as the combination of the movement of the boat and the smell of the seals can be overwhelming.

Chapman’s Peak Drive on the Atlantic Coast between Hout Bay and Noordhoek in the Cape Peninsula is one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. Chapman’s Peak Drive is affectionately known as “Chappies” and is a must for anyone who is passionate about the majestic scenery of Cape Town. Visit the Chapman’s Peak website for road status and tariff details.
