NARRATOR: Keep going straight up the little hill. As you walk, you’ll see the Atlantic disappearing into the haze on your left. From here, it stretches all the way up the west coast of Africa and eventually reaches Europe. The first European explorers to arrive at the Cape would have emerged from this very same haze. Justin Fox, a South African author, is fascinated by the maritime history of this coast. I’ll hand over to him in a minute, and he’ll tell you a bit about that.
