I went to Bo-Kaap on my own. I was lucky and met a 50 year native of the area who was kind enough to spend an hour with me describing the area and its long, painful history. Without a local guide you will not get the full understanding or experience what this neighborhood has to offer. It helps you to understand Cape Town today and Cape Town 40 years ago. I love Cape Town, and the time I spent in Bo-Kaap will be an experience I shall remember for a very long time.
