Cape Town on Foot: From the Slave Lodge to Bo-Kaap
You're doing well, carry on going up the hill!
Sheik Yusuf came to the Cape on 2 April 1694 and lived on the farm Zandvliet near Stellenbosch, about 40 km from Cape Town. The farm soon became a meeting place for slaves and other exiles from the East. Sheik Yusuf died at Zandvliet in May 1699. A few years later, in 1704, his wives, daughters and sons under the age of six boarded the ships De Spiegel and De Liefde for home.
