Discover the earliest forms of art and technology
Continue your journey to the popular holiday town of Stilbaai to find a direct, visible connection with this coastal area’s early cave dwellers at Noordkappers Point about 2km from the harbour. Here, more than 20 ancient stonewalled fish traps represents the technological evolution of early fishing practices in the area.
The traps have been declared a National Heritage Site and they are now falling within a Marine Protected Area. They illustrate a common fishing method along the Southern Cape coast that endured through the ages.
