The Area

This area has a rich history with Bartholomew Dias erecting a cross here to mark his furthest point of discovery in 1488. This area has midens showing the remains of the Koyi peoples who lived here many centuries before the Xhosa people came. This is where the so called “White” settlers met the so called “Black” Peoples coming down from the North. The area has a great variety of flora and bird life, including some century-old cycads, which are one of the most primitive plants still alive today. Kenton is in the middle of all this which allows for interesting stays here.

And then there are the people who live here and make it a stay you won’t forget.
