• LOCATION 24 | Cape Town on Foot: From the Slave Lodge to Bo-Kaap

    Chiappini Lane

    Stop when you get a view of the hill on your left.

    [5 SECOND PAUSE]

    Have a look across the parking area on the left, at some of the modern housing development on the hill. That is the area of Stadzight, which means 'Town View'. It is named after a small farm once operated by the Dutch East India Company. The Slums Act of 1934 declared Bo-Kaap a slum and many Muslims lost their properties as a result. Many chose to move further up the hill to this area. A large part of the Stadzight space is taken up by the Tana Baru Muslim Cemetery.

    Now, continue to walk downhill towards a small, open gateway and a set of steps. I'll meet you on the steps.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
