Discover how and where the first South Africans lived roughly 160 000 years ago and then learn about the first Europeans settlers that set foot in Mossel Bay.
Visit a cave where many years of archaeological studies have unearthed the secrets of its inhabitants. Your qualified guide will be able to shed more light on how these ancient people lived, what their diet consisted of, why they left the cave, and how they relate to us.
After a scrumptious seafood lunch at one of Mossel Bay’s premium restaurants, your guide will escort you to the spot where the first Europeans sailors landed in 1488. The Portuguese were the first to set foot on our shores. Your guide will then accompany you to the local museum where a life-sized replica of the Portuguese vessel can be boarded to experience what life and conditions were like for sailors in the late 1400s.
