First on the afternoon agenda is the Cape Castle, historically significant in that it is South Africa's oldest building. It served as both a prison and administrative headquarters to successive colonial rulers. After the Cape Castle, we visit the Company's Gardens, which was established in early 1652 by Jan van Riebeeck as a vegetable garden. The original location was closer to the shoreline, and, in a bid to plant his crops in more fertile soil and on ground sheltered from the wind, he moved it to where it is today with its northern boundary on Wale Street. It is now a large public park and botanical garden and is home to a rose garden, Japanese garden, fish pond and aviary. During the late afternoon, guests are transferred to any location of their choice in Cape Town where this day tour of Robben Island and the City of Cape Town ends.
