BO-KAPIE (1833) is, as its name implies, a typical example of the multi coloured houses found in the Bo-Kaap. Nestling under the steep slopes of Signal Hill in Cape Town, the Bo-Kaap is where Malay residents, forcibly brought to the Cape, made their homes after slavery was abolished in the 1830’s. It is known as the Malay/Islamic Quarter of Cape Town ( “Slamse Buurt”).

Judging by the name of the original owner of this 1833 cottage situated in what used to be known as the “Slamse Buurt “ / “Islamic Quarter” of Swellendam, it was renamed BO-KAPIE in 1996 when Lizette rescued it from demolition. Unfortunately very little remains in this part of Swellendam to-day of what could have been something very special. The BO-KAAP is probably one of the most photographed areas of the Mother City, so steeped in history.
