Cape Flats: The birthplace of the Cape soul

Visit the Cape Flats, an area where many of the coloured communities where relocated during apartheid in South Africa.


The Cape Flats are the flat expanse of land that stretches east of Table Mountain, and is where most of the coloured communities where relocated during the days of apartheid.

Today the Cape Flats are considered the birthplace of Cape Town's soul. Art, crafts and music abound and the people are what make the Cape Flats a special place.

There is a growing number of tour operators offering tours to the Cape Flats, as for instance Trojan Tours.
