History & Culture

Archaeological research shows that the Cape region has been inhabited by humans for approximately 750,000 years. It was discovered by Europeans in 1488, who made several attempts to establish supply ports for ships sailing to Asia. Their relations with the indigenous people, especially the Khoi Khoi, were difficult and often ended tragically. In 1691, Cape Town officially became a port colony, and its strategic location made it a cosmopolitan hub, attracting sailors from around the world. Slavery was abolished in 1863, but segregationist laws were implemented during apartheid by the nationalist government elected in 1948. These laws were gradually repealed between 1976 and 1989, when the democratic party came to power.
