online travel guide through Southern Africa - updates, news, online booking, tour offers and more from Southern Africa and the backpacking world Cape Town, or “Mother City”, is the place where South Africa, as we know it today, was founded by the Dutchman Jan van Riebeek in 1652. First used as a refreshment station for the Dutch East India Company, Cape Town grew quite quickly and became a small settlement of the first European settlers. In the following years Cape Town got a fort (the Castle of Good Hope) as well as the Company Gardens which were established at the foot of Table Mountain.
