This Self-Guided Audio Tour invites adventurers and history enthusiasts to explore Cape Town's profound history of slavery. Crossing from the striking Slave Lodge to the reflective Prestwich Memorial, listeners will engage with a narrative that reveals the struggles and resilience of enslaved people in shaping the city. The journey begins by stepping back in time at the Slave Lodge, then meanders through historic streets, past vibrant marketplaces, and concludes at the Prestwich Memorial where the tour delivers a powerful close.

Along the way, travelers will cross picturesque bridges and walk beneath the canopy of mature trees, every step bringing to life the stories of those once silenced. Participants will experience the vibrant tradition of the Kaapse Klopse, honor the unspoken histories at the Prestwich Memorial, and wander the age-old lanes where every building and street corner tells a tale.
