Impressive history

Cape Town was a supply port for Dutch vessels heading east during Holland’s Golden Age. Reminders of these times can still be found today, as can echoes of slavery and apartheid. Robben Island, where Mandela was held prisoner, has become a major tourist attraction, while the less-known Slave Lodge is also well worth a visit.
