About the tour

The tour will be a journey into the oldest colonial building in South Africa that was initially built as a military, political and economic headquarters. The role of the castles changed a few times through the years; by walking through the old walls we will discover the history of the building, its architecture and the role it had in the past and today. This is a very historical tour.

Thank you for making this an interesting tour, even though the castle was closed (covid). I loved the history and views of the castle and also the opportunity to see the Nelson Mandela statue and other sights I'd not have seen otherwise :)
