Historical Beginnings of South Africa


Explore and Discover what life was like for the first humans and first Europeans to arrive in South Africa

See what life was like for the first humans to live in and first Europeans to arrive in South Africa.

160,000 years ago, our ancestors settled at the most southern point of Africa.  They made this area their home and from here, migrated around the world, or so the archaeological findings say.  Delve into history with a visit to the Point of Human Origin cave near Mossel Bay, South Africa and imagine what life was like 160,000 years ago

Fast forward approximately 158348 years and Jan van Riebeeck arrives in present day Cape Town in 1652.  Many believe him to be the first European to arrive on present day South African shores. Actually, the first Europeans arrived 200 years earlier.  Visit the landing spot, post tree and a replica of the first Portuguese ship to have arrived here.
