About Cape Town

The earliest known remnants in the region were found at Peers Cave in Fish Hoek and date to between 15,000 and 12,000 years ago. In the late 1500s, settlers from the Netherlands established a settlement at Table Bay (Dutch: Tafelbaai) on the shores of Table Bay. The settlement was first named "Contra-Cape" or "the Counter Coast", but was later renamed Cape Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad). It is thought that Dutch sailors either called it de Kaap ("the Cape") after a landmark or they named it after Jan van Riebeeck's hometown of Kapelle; however both theories have been contested.
