Discovering Mossel Bay


Take a break on shore, let us discover where South Africa's first explorers landed. . . right here in 1488, Bartolomeu Diaz landed and found a freshwater fountain where they replenished supplies for the vessel. We visit the Bartolomeu Diaz Museum Complex to take in the history of the area and having time to post a card from the 'original post tree'. From the Complex we have a short drive to the Point where we shall have a picnic with light refreshments and eats while looking over the Indian ocean.

The St. Blaize Lighthouse looks over the Point, and at the base, we climb up to the St. Blaize Cave named after another explorer Vasco da Gama in 1497. These fascinating caves have a history dating to as far back as the Middle Stone Age. Leaving the cave we alight our vehicle for a short tour of the town passing several historical buildings of interest before returning to the Mossel Bay harbor quay.
