Description

Step back in time to when the Apartheid system started in South Africa (1948), when different groups of people were separated on the basis of their race.

We start our driving tour at an area called District 6 where people of all races used to live before they were forcibly removed by the government of that time. Here, we will visit the District 6 Museum where we will see the remaining debris of the area formally lived by this mixed-race community.

From there we will visit the Castle Of Good Hope, the oldest colonial building in South Africa constructed by the Dutch settlers to protect themselves against the ships going to India and Europe as well as from the primary inhabitant of this land the KHOE-KHOE people.

Next, stop at the parade where Nelson Mandela gave his very first democratic speech after coming out of prison on 11 February 1990. Then, move on to the Slave Lodge where slaves from Malaysia, India, China, and other places were accommodated so that they could work on the farm, become soldiers, and other hard labourers.

Our next stop will be at the Apartheid Benches. These benches show us how a black person could not sit on the same bench as a white person when waiting for the bus. They are located at the very same place where the Apartheid laws were passed at that time.

We end our tour at a place called the BO-KAAP. In 1834 when England declares the end of slavery in all of their colonies some ex-slaves came to live in this area which later transformed into a tourist hotspot with an array of beautiful colourful houses.
