Cape Town for history enthusiasts

Cape Town is a multi-faceted city, with something to offer everyone. Those with an interest in history are no exception. The city was home to the Khoi and San people thousands of years ago, and later became the centre of European colonisation. It has endured colonisation, slavery, naval battles around its shores, survived Apartheid and eventually, became a massive part in the birth of South Africa’s young democracy. Here’s a comprehensive guide to Cape Town for history buffs.
