You are only moments away

TThe Cape Malay community has contributed to the vast tapestry of South African traditions in ways that stretch beyond the first mosques in South Africa and the first tombs of holy men who were exiled to the Cape, which you can find dotted all over Bo-Kaap for instance.

This is a culture and a people who live in Cape Town that do not exist anywhere outside of South Africa. It is a unique, warm and friendly culture. It is the culture of the Cape Malays. And if you visit Cape Town, it greets you wherever you go.

Cape Malays have arguably one of the most distinct and unique societies in the whole of South Africa. The culture is born from a dark and heavy past, burdened by displacement, slavery and slave owners nonetheless, but it has and continues to grow into one of the liveliest, loving and most definitive and indeed one of the oldest cultures exclusive to South Africa.
