Cultural / historical heritage

From its prehistory to its settlement, explorers, colonialism, apartheid and today South Africa, Cape Town has played a vital role in framing today’s South Africa. Cape Town is a melting pot of people from diverse backgrounds – from both in South Africa and around the world, but certain cultural attractions stand out.

There are a number of Townships around Cape Town, and tours into these areas, which include Gugulethu, Langa, and Khayelitsha, offer great insight into Cape Town’s communities and a unique experience of South Africa’s past and present.

A peek into Robben Island, the infamous prison island that held so many of South Africa’s political prisoners during the Apartheid years, former president Nelson Mandela paints a picture of how far the country has come.

As you plan your next vacation, visit Cape Town so you can have an even better story to tell!
