Brief History of Cape Town

Cape Town’s formal written history dates back to Bartholomeu Dias’s travel journals from 1488. Before that, not much is known about the region and everything we do know today has been derived from studying the natural landscape.

The Portuguese were the first Europeans to arrive on South African soil  - first with Bartholomeu Dias and later with Vasco da Gama in 1497. The massive flat-shaped mountain was named ‘Table of the Cape’ or Taboa da caba in 1503 by one of the Portuguese admirals who arrived in the region.

In the 1500’s the Portuguese left the region and in 1652 the Dutch arrived. Jan van Riebeeck stepped out on African soil and established a halfway station for ships travelling from Europe to India. Van Riebeeck led the creation of gardens and vegetable farming as subsistence for those stopping in the area. Later, Indians immigrated to the region as they were banished there by the Dutch.
