Bo-Kaap – It’s official

Bo-Kaap is officially named as such with fixed boundaries!!

“The Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa has approved an application from the Bo-Kaap Civic and Ratepayers’ Association (BKCRA), publishing in the Government Gazette last week, that the entire area known as Schotschekloof would now become known as the Bo-Kaap.

The BKCRA had applied for the boundaries of the Bo-Kaap to extend from the quarry on Strand Street down to Buitengracht Street, to Carisbrook Street on the border with Tamboerskloof and up to Military Road on Signal Hill.

Previously, the Bo-Kaap area included three parts known as Schotschekloof, Stadzicht and Schoone Kloof – names of Dutch origin.”


About Us began as an idea in 2003, it still remains as a passion project.
