We start the tour at 71 Wale Street where we discuss the origins of the oldest suburb in South Africa. Our walk then takes us to the Auwal Mosque, which is the oldest mosque in South Africa, dating back to 1794, when it was started by slaves in defiance of Dutch law. Inside the mosque you will see a Quran handwritten from memory, by Tuan Guru, an exiled political prisoner from the Island of Tidore. We then work our way to a locals home to enjoy a traditional treat and a cup of rooibos tea. The host will regale you with stories of this historical neighbourhood, its people and its cultures. From here, we walk down the street with all the colourful houses. This is the most-photographed street in South Africa. We then work our way towards Cape Town’s famed spice shop, Atlas, where you will smell the heady aromas of spices used in everyday Cape Malay cooking. These are the same spices used by slaves as an expression of freedom in their masters’ kitchens.

It's this deep love that fuels our desire to share with you this beautiful and intricately woven culture that is unmatched anywhere in the world.

Dove ti troverai
Central to the Cape Malay culture is Islam. You will have a rare opportunity to see a Quran handwritten by political prisoner of the early Dutch colonialist, Tuan Guru. In defiance of Dutch law, he started the Auwal (the first) Mosque. The land on which the mosque is built was donated by a freed slave woman, Saartjie van de Kaap.
