Over the centuries, natural and historical events and extensive development have obscured Cape Town's original shoreline. This has influenced the city’s history and reconfigured the shape of the land that meets the water. And yet, it is a line rich with history, and contains layers of stories that have long been suppressed, overlooked, or left to lie in dusty drawers and family folklore.

This self-guided audio tour retraces the original shoreline, from the first making of the land to the present day – and beyond it, into the lessons changes to sea level hold for our future.
