Join Iziko educator Lungile Gadezweni, for a morning walkabout at the Castle of Good Hope and discover some different aspects of this historic
building. The VOC and its establishment will be explained, the settlement at the Cape and interaction with locals. A highlight of the two sites will be a walk around the Fort and the Castle followed by a visit to the Provost Cells and torture chambers. At the Military Museum we will look at locals versus the new arrivals, South African Wars – Frontier Wars, Zulu Wars and Anglo-Boer Wars. At the William Fehr Collection special focus will be on William Fehr himself, his artworks and its display at the Castle of Good Hope. The visit will end with the Key Ceremony at 12:00.
