Cultural Tours


The Western Cape has a rich cultural heritage. The influence of the Dutch, French and English can still be seen in many historical buildings and farm and other place names.

Add to this, the heritage of the indigenous people who lived here thousands of years before the European settlers had arrived, the slaves, who arrived shortly after Jan van Riebeeck had landed and the fight for freedom and democracy.

Eco-Information on the Western Cape, South Africa.
Small pockets of Afro-Montane forest occur on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain above the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. One of the earliest references to these were made in Jan van Riebeeck's journal on Sunday, 9 June 1652, when the forests on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain were discovered.

The demand by the early settlers for wood for building the first fort, houses, a jetty, wagon making, ships, bridges, firewood, etc. eventually reduced the forests to the remnants that we have today.
