Bo-Kaap Walking Tour, Slave Route & Cape Malay Lunch
Local resident, community activist, and qualified guide, Bilqees Baker, takes us on a Bo-Kaap walking tour to private, sacred and public spaces. We visit the so-called slave tree, South Africa’s oldest mosque, Cape Town’s leading spice shop, and community projects. We’ll also learn about the country’s first political prisoners, slave history and problems with large property developments. We finish with a homemade Cape Malay lunch in Bilqees’ friend’s house, Neesa Bosch, on Wale Street.
