Experience the cobblestoned and colourful Bo Kaap neighbourhood on a walking tour. Begin on the slopes of Signal Hill, where the brightly coloured houses unfold in an array of pinks, greens, blues and oranges. Then, savour the taste of the spicy ‘Cape Malay’ food on offer, made famous by the people who call the neighbourhood home. Bo Kaap also boasts South Africa’s first mosque, Auwal Masjid and the Bo Kaap Museum, which is housed in the oldest home in the area. Dating back to the 1760s, the house highlights the cultural contribution made by early Muslim settlers.
