Bo Kaap Museum - De Waterkant
13h00 Leaving the Bo-Kaap Musuem head straight across the road and along Rose St several blocks until you
reach the busy Strand St (which – if you were driving – would lead you to Sea Point). Wait for a safe point to cross the road and take a left. Walk until Chiappini St takes you to the right and then go left on Waterkant St. You are now in Die Waterkant!
De Waterkant was part of the multicultural all-accepting Bo Kaap until 1966 when the National Party enforced the Group Areas Act and nearly every non-white who lived on the sea-side of Strand St was evicted. In an ironic cultural twist the neighbourhood is now extremely liberal and the gay centre of Cape Town!
