We begin the day with a delightful breakfast as we set off to explore the legacy of the first origins of Islam to arrive on the shores of South Africa. No visit to Cape Town is complete without scaling the top of the most defining feature of Cape Town, Table Mountain and experience views of unparalleled beauty from this majestic resident of the Mother City. Our Cape Islamic Tour takes us to the suburb of District Six, where non-white residents were removed by force during apartheid.
