Description
Drive through the city of Cape Town via the vibrant Bo-Kaap, or Cape Malay Quarter (so named for those peoples exiled to the Cape from Dutch colonies in the East).

Leave the vehicles for a historic walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for ships and locals from the mid-17th Century, and now home to the SA Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St George's Cathedral. Stroll through the city to Greenmarket Square, where you can browse bustling market stalls for beautiful and unique African mementos.

From there drive to the Castle, South Africa's oldest building, with its formidable collection of Old Cape paintings. Take in the nearby Grand Parade, where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation on his release from prison in 1990, and then move on to the District Six Museum, which showcases the colourful life of this legendary area and the forced relocation of its residents during Apartheid.

Entrance fees to the SA Museum and Castle of Good Hope are included - other points of interest are optional.
